    Mopar Big Brake Kit Discontinued for the JK

    I have been planning on upgrading my JK brakes and had been looking at the Dynatrac Progrip. But, based on some of the member opinions here, I became convinced that the Mopar Big Brake Kit with its dual calipers and larger than stock rotors was the way to go. I tried ordering them today and everyone is saying they are discontinued. A number of places are advertising this kit for the JL, but they say it does not fit the JK. Anyone know why it would not fit, or where I can find an original kit that fits my JK? Or, what else should I be looking at?

    Look for the Crown kit as I believe it was the same. It was basically Ram calipers and rotors and a master cylinder from a Dakota if I recall properly. You can piece together a kit by yourself if you can find the parts list. I know I've seen said list someplace, but not sure where right now.

    Not sure who convinced you of that, but I would be looking at the Dynatrac progrip kit.

    I agree and so does MOPAR but they can be found. I agree with you Dynatrac is the way to go.

    I’m able to lock up a fully loaded JKU on 37s with the Dynatrac kit. It’s the only way to go.

    WJCO asked who convicted me to go with the Mopar. There is a really good thread started by Chad s on 9/18 titled Mopar Big Brake Kit.

    First off, I love my Dynatrac ProRock 44 unlimited. I can be fine with their Progrips. However the greater clamping force gained by replacing the stock calipers with dual pistons of greater total capacity than stock is simply “better”. I run Hutchinson, with BFG KM2’s that weigh 121 pounds each. It is not my DD. I carry a bunch of stuff. My DD is an MB that stops so fast it is dangerous for the vehicle behind me, if it me in my Jeep following me.

    Given my circumstance, I had hoped to step up a notch from just bigger rotors and better pads.

    All suggestions are appreciated.

    Mopar Big Brake Kit Discontinued for the JK

    Any big brake kit is going to be an improvement. The larger rotor found in every kit, including Dynatrac, makes the biggest difference. But if you have your heart set on a kit with a bigger, 2 pot caliper, Teraflex offers it. Yes I know they have a bad rep on this forum. But I can tell you that the only TF part I have on my Jeep is the big brake kit, and it’s worked well for me for going on 5+ years.

    That is a bold admission. Facts are facts. It is appreciated. I will look at it. As for me, I have a one TF part and it is the tailgate shelf thingy and I can honestly say that it has held up well to a lot of beer and sandwiches.

“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.
