Brake Upgrades

Title says it. And of course I used search and reviewed a few older threads, but each one seemed to vary wildly and there was no consensus on the topic, so I figured I'd start from scratch.

Has anyone done a brake upgrade on their JK? What did you use? Pads only? Rotors and pads? What brands? Results?

I have 17" wheels and 35" tires and can definitely feel that it could be better than what I'm getting by still using the stock pads/rotors.

I'd rather not change the master cylinder, and likely don't yet need stainless lines (although that'd be a nice upgrade later down the road). I'm really just focused on rotor/pads at this point.

Thanks for any input!

I am interested in options as well as I have 17's and 35's. Braking a bit sooner is always a plus.

I recommend the Teraflex kit with the larger reservoir. It just brakes better.
