Here is the back story. I have a 5yo Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon.
I do a lot of long-distance driving as well as off-roading whenever possible.
My vehicle is mostly stock with the exception of an extra 200 pounds of weight due to an aftermarket winch and bumper.
I'm about due for new front brakes.
I've been saying for years that I wanted to upgrade to a better braking system when this day came because the stock brakes have horrible stopping power. Far worse than any vehicle I have ever owned.
I was originally targeting the Mopar big brake upgrade, because it's just over $1000.
I recently learned that the "Mopar Big Brake" kit, is the stock Rubicon brakes.
Every other kit I look at is Comperable to what I have, worse, or $2000 per axle.
I'm considering what would happen if I were to go with some Baer 13.5" brakes in the front.
Eventually I would replace the rear, but it might take another year. Bad Idea? Is there any way to compensate?
