we have all been modding our truks to go fast and roll on huge tires..

has anyone upgraded their brakes?

I have been looking at the SSBC kit
I have had the Wilwoods on a lifted truckbefore and they were great but expensive.
SSBC seem to be priced pretty fair.

i have the ebc yellowstuff pads but i would love to be able to shut this boat down a little quicker if i had to

I am also interested about upgraded brakes. Drilled and slotted rotors would be great for heavy breaking!

Can't say I've looked into upgraded brakes, but I can say that I've never noticed how slow that pig slows down until I got in this stupid rental Dodge 1/2 ton and it stops a year quicker than the pig. Kinda woke me up!

Yeah I was thinking about those on my truck when I need to replace the rotors....


Though more painful, there is more dignity being under the bus than under the least under the bus, you're only swallowing a little pride....
