    Brakes, and rotor upgrade, which brand is good or best

    I need to get some new rotors and and thinking maybe calipers, was going to just replace with OEM rotors but figured I'd ask the Jeep experts.
    What Brand, is good, are rotors and calipers nessasary? Crossed drilled slotted ? Thanks for the advice in advance.

    Anybody try the dynatrac's with a stock setup? Just curious if it's worth the upgrade vs stock

    Hands down, the Dynatrac ProGrip is what you want. Trust me, I have tested them out and compared them to other kits like the TeraFlex brake kit and it still works better.

    Yes. Only 17" or larger.

    I 2nd Eddie on this. I had the TeraFlex big Brake kit and then put on the Dynatrc ProGrip brakes.
    The TF was an improvement over stock, but the Dynatrac was noticeably better than the TF big brake. If you consider that you get pads with 4 rotors it's a good price too

    I run the dynatrac brakes with 37s, prior to these I ran powerstop cross/slotted with ceramic pads with my 35s

    the powerstop were a big improvement over stock especially when towing a trailer.

    The dyntracs with 37s are a even bigger improvement, they stop much better than the powerstop with 35s

    If you have the budget I'd get dynatrac no need to upgrade the calipers, just make sure your wheels have 17" clearance as some wheels start at 17 but then get thicker and reduce in clearance.

    Totally sucks getting all 4 brakes changed out only to find out the wheels won't clear by about an 1/8", then having to remove them and reinstall the stock brakes...ask me how I know
