Upgrading my brakes

I love my 2013 with the 2.5 budget boost and 35's. My only complaint is the braking sucks and I wish it felt a little more secure in steering. It already has a upgraded stabilizer bar. What do I need to upgrade the brakes? My problem is at 50 plus MPH when I hit the brakes the Jeep becomes very unstable and sways from left to right. I don't mind so much but don't want my wife to panic in the event of a emergency.

You don't need a big brake kit, you need to have them looked at.

Looked at as in something may be wrong? The Jeep only has 1000 miles on it. Not saying something couldn't be wrong but I would be surprised. Also with the rotor kit is anyone using it and can provide any feedback?

What he said.

Your brakes shouldn't be acting this way just because of lift and tires. Normally when weight adding mods are installed braking distance becomes longer (which would be good time to go with the big brake kit) but it shouldn't become unstable.
