    VIDEO : 2015 SEMA Show Highlights - Dynatrac ProGRIP & ProGRIP 2 Brake System

    As if the Dyantrac ProGrip wasn't good enough at being the best braking system available for the Jeep JK Wrangler, they released an all NEW ProGrip II at the 2015 SEMA Show and from what I'm told, it'll offer double the braking power. In other words, if you are running a big heavy JK pushing 40" tires and still want it to stop like a Ferrari, this is the kit for you.



    Here are some more photos of the ProGRIP 2

    Those are some massive calipers! They would definitely stop you in a hurry, that's for sure!

    Seems like I read somewhere on here that it was at least an 18 inch rim.

    This is correct. While there might be some 17" wheels that will work with the ProGrip 2, Dynatrac is recommending 18" or bigger.

    Good reason to buy new tires for my 18"s and save for new bead locks and brakes.

    I don't know about that. I think the original ProGrip is more than sufficient in their ability to stop my JK running 40" tires. Me, I still prefer 17" wheels as you have more tire options and ones that cost less.

    I had read some of the information on the pro-grip 1 and the brakes on the 8 lug (60 and 80) were still quite a bit better. Any info on how the new pro-grip 2 stack up to the guys running the 60/80 8 lug?

“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.
