Anyone running the Big Brake kit from Teraflex? How do you like it?

Which big brake kit are you looking at? The one with a calipers or the one without? I currently run the one without and I love it but I installed quite a few of the other kits when I owned my shop. I suggest getting the Master cylinder with that kit no matter what.

the one without the calipers but with slotted rotors

Also, does Teraflex need a 2012 JKU to test out some new products for them?

lol, nahh were good. Most of the employees own Jeeps, we all kinda have a Jeep problem. We have everything from aZJ 5.9 to xj to JK's in the parking lot. You are looking at the same kit I did. Only thing I might suggest is throw in a good set of performance pads too.

Any recommendations on a pad? Was looking at the Hawk Ceramic or LTS pads.

Also think I decided on teraflex big rotor kit slotted so I don't have to get master replacement.

both of those are good, or EBC greens. We don't have a specific one we recommend since people like different things in their performance pads.

i'm running their kit with stock pads... have had mounted up for i guess about a month. very happy with the difference. and it's noticeable, especially with my heavy arsed 37" Toyo MTs... i think down the road, i'd like to upgrade to the dual piston caliper... but for now, this has me a pretty happy camper.
