Jk brakes are pretty awesome actually

So i have read one or two post where people have called the jks brakes mediocre and in sufficient. Well i will say that after having a deer jump out in front of me today, they are very good lol. Granted i only have 32's i have the heaviest 32 known to man aka trail grapplers. I hit em hard and felt all the blood swoosh to the front of my face. Just wanted to have a positive post.

They are pretty good with stock tires. My tire wheel combo weigh about 140lbs each, the brakes are sketchy with this rotating mass.

Not just rotating mass but increased leverage with the larger diameter, big tires really kill braking performance.
