    Ever since upgrading to 37's I've been on the search for better brakes. I was going to go with the Dynatrac ProGrip but there was a disclaimer on their site that said they do not work with my wheels. So the search continued. I came across the Crown Big Brake Kit. I don't have a fear of working on brakes. I had already replaced my front brake lines and bleed them before. So I figured I would give them a shot. I installed them this weekend. Super easy install. Didn't take much time at all. Holy Crap! These brakes are amazing!! While breaking them in I felt like I was in a sports car. I new the bigger rotors and dual piston calipers would have to be better them factory but had no idea how much better it would be. I highly recommend these to anyone that decides to not go the ProGrip route.

    I apologize for not getting better photos but look as the size difference of the rotor.

    Here is the pads side by side.

    You can see there is still room around the rotor/caliper. I was worried it would be tight.

    Those look good. Are those only made for the front brakes?

    Yeah. I'm on the lookout for an upgrade on the rear. But so far I can tell a world of a difference with just changing the front.

    Side Note:
    If you have a JK older then 2012 you will need the larger bore master cylinder. Mine is a 2012 and doesn't need it.

    So I’ve done several thinks to Tucker over the last month. I made my own tie rod and drag link. Installed a front raised track bar bracket and went back to the factory track bar. Sold my tire/wheels and installed some beadlocks with 37” Coopers. Added Redneck Ram. Installed some rock lights.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
