    Go with the Dynatrac ProGrip system. It fits your budget, is an easy install, and most importantly flat out works awesome. Everything bolts on with no bleeding of the brakes, and no modifications to the master cylinder are needed. Easily on of the best upgrades you can do. You won't be disappointed.

    $1000 for rotors, pads, and caliper relocation brackets?


    Are those brackets real gold?

    If anyone is interested I have a teraflex big brake kit with the slotted rotors (part #4303420) I would like to sell. I bought it when I was planning to use a built Dana 44 but the Dana 60 I ended up with came with big brakes. It is the complete kit all brand new but the rotors are dusty as I pulled them out of he box and they sat on a work bench for about two months.

    $1K wouldn't be too bad, but what additionally got me is that 2/3rds of the parts are meant to wear out. So I had to go look at the cost of those replacement parts which ended up being $504 which are the only parts that essentially could increase your braking. You're paying $500 for caliper adapter relocation mounting brackets for the stock calipers which would be needed due to the larger rotors.

    I guess if you don't want to do a real braking system upgrade, then that's the price you have to pay, and then pay again when it's time to replace those parts that are meant to wear out.

    That's was my point the parts don't even come close to $1k if u add them up. Unless a set of rotors and pads are all of a sudden $400 per axle. Does anyone know if the caliper adapters are set up for the stock front and rear pad sizes?

    This is something I would like to do in the future.

    Wanted to thank everyone for the input!

    Just did, looks pretty good. I guess I'm biased. My reference point is that I installed the Mopar BBK. That Vanco kit is very similar to the Mopar Kit, but Vanco kit cost $1100 but with the Mopar kit you get more and pay less.

    This is what the Mopar BBK gives you for $700-$750 and despite what some of the other BBK vendors might try to mislead you to believe, the install is rather simple and doesn't require some special dealer bleeding like they'll try to scare you into believing.





    For the rears, I just added some EBC pads to increase stopping power in the rear. With most Front engine, rear wheel drive vehicles such as the JK, most of the braking is applied to the front brakes because that's where the majority of the weight is at. A 60/40 split is pretty common for front engine, rear wheel drive vehicles. I've had my Mopar BBK on for the past 2 years, works great with my 35in tires.
