Rubicon Brake Upgrade

I have a 2012 Call of Duty Rubicon with 2" lift and 18" wheels. I am trying to find out if the Wilwood Kit will work. Wilwood told me they could not confirm fitment that it would only fit standard JK 2012.
If not what other options are out there besides the Teraflex for the Rubicon

I've used these guys in the past for some of my sports cars, A1 quality and great customer service. I myself am thinking of upgrading my stock brakes in my 12 Rubi also...

R1Concepts - OEM, Drilled & Slotted Brake Rotors - Brake Pads - Brake Calipers

I haven't been able to find what this part number applies too, but it's a hell of a deal, probably about a $3000.00 brake kit for $110.99.

However I don't think they'll honour it or I'd buy a dozen of them and resell.

steel lines, better pads and rotor will greatly improve braking...and save your wallet

The Baer kit is very nice. Interesting they don't require/recommend a master cylinder swap. I've sent their support a question about it.

I replaced the front rotors with the larger Teraflex non-slotted rotors and Hawk LTS pads. It made a nice improvement although it's only for the front. I suppose any upgraded rotors and pads should give improved braking but the stock setup isn't bad.

I doubt it, it's 380mm rotors would need at least a 19" wheel.

But if you knew what it fitted and they would sell it to you for that price I'd buy a few of them and make a few $
