    Default Jeep STOPPING Power or Stop here, Stop NOW!

    Slap on big meats and suddenly ok braking becomes can't stop now and dragging your foot is better.

    Upgrading brakes is costly and can often be fraught with issues. But wait foot dragger there is a better sole for those shoes...

    The front brakes are a decent setup and to upgrade to bigger and better is not cheap and can be complicated. Unless you are going beyond 37's I don't think you need to leave the Jeep brakes behind.

    That said there are ways to significantly increase you braking ability. Best setup that will let you stop on a dime with change left over and stay with the Jeep format:

    This is my ONLY recommendation for pads and rotors for Jeeps. This outfit is world class and comes standard on some of the worlds supercars, extensively used in racing in the US and abroad.

    I will let you look at the different offerings for the TJ and pick what you believe you want and need.

    I suggest you look at the 'Yellowstuff' for pads and if you do mostly rocks then slotted rotors are the best, if you are mudding very much then stay with the OEM replacements...

    Stop here, stop now

    EBC yellows in the front, greens in the rear and centric rotors all the way around. Appears to be good enough for 35" tires. You're not going to stop on a dime, but it's a definite improvement over stock.

    Please take in to acount that this is a 24 year old truck. Best guess is 5 to 8 fast on the speedo. And it bounces around a lot. Compaired to stock with oem size tires it took over 230 ft to stop from +45 that was with out pumping. If i pump them up it would stop in about 180 ish. The oem set up is around 750 psi brake pressure. The hydro boost with 1/2" pedal pressure it was about 2000 psi. Full brake was about 1" and about 2500 to 3000 psi. With the stock pedal it was a full 3" push. Please keep in mind this is all just some tape messure stuff with the wife helping. When she stops now it is in a pluming cloud of smoke and screaching tires. Defently recommend to everyone with a jeep. Here is a pic of my setup.
