Question Brake Upgrades??

So far, the brakes on my Jeep seem to be sufficient with 35's. I think with anything larger than 35's, an upgrade would be a must.

At what point are you guys upgrading your brakes?

For those that have upgraded, any suggestions??

So if I get 36" tires on a 4" lift I should get new brakes too? Anything else I should know?

I'll upgrade when my pads first wear out; I've never found the stock brakes to be something to be proud of...
Maybe powerslot rotors and Hawk pads or something.
