Brakes!!!!

Any help would be appreciated. I have a lifted 6.0 with 46 in military tires and it still has the stock rotors and brakes. I want to upgrade these to drilled and slotted rotors and ceramic brakes for faster stopping. Do yall have any suggestions on brands or what has or has not worked for yall? The guys at my local 4wheel parts store reccomended Powerstop. Also, does anyone know the difference between z16 brake pads and z36 brake pads?

thanks,
Jonny

Stay away from carbon ceramic brakes, they have to heat up to work, so your first stop will almost be brake free, until you run into something. on 46's this won't go well.

This comes from my experience with them on the Porsches PCCB Brake system.

Rolling on 46's, those Wilwoods should definitely be on your "to-do" list. Stock brake calipers and drilled and/or slotted rotors will not be nearly enough stopping force for those.

Nobody else is making a kit for these trucks. They aren't cheap, but how much is being able to stop that rolling mass worth? 46's are a huge rolling mass to halt.

Very true, however, i just bought the truck and the previous owner had the stock rotors and they are crap. theyre all ate up and deep grooved. i need to get something quick and those are out of the budget right now. they are definately on the to do list though.

They are definitely nice, the only reason I put them up was because the size of your tires! 46" tire is big enough that Brembo would probably suggest the wildwoods! KMSL
