Brake upgrade parts

I recently lifted and installed 33" tires on my 2005 TJ. I noticed the braking is not as strong as it was before which is understandable with the larger tire diameter. Are there any aftermarket parts that would enhance the braking power? I have heard the rear disc conversion does not make that much difference since most of the stopping power comes from the front. Are there front pads and rotors that can make any improvement?

Black magic brakes. I've heard nothing but good things about them and I will definitely buy them next time I need pads

X2, Black Magic's pads have been the best braking pads out there for our Wranglers for quite a while now. I've run them on two different TJs & they produce a noticeable improvement in braking.

Google black magic brakes. They're a forum vendor but they sell through the website.
