break issue

Hello everyone and Ty in advance for any help or suggestions you might be able to offer. I have recently noticed it a lot harder to stop my jeep. I have 35" tires on my jeep and I noticed it getting worst each time I wheel. I have plenty of break fluid and changed the breaks a few months ago but did not turn the rotors. If I wanted to upgrade my break system if this isn't an easy fix what should I upgrade to? Ty again and have a blessed week
Ps its a 2005 jeep TJ

Wrong.

Did I say wrong?...Yeah, wrong.

As far as the rears go, tear them down and give them a proper and respectful total rebuild. Do new quality cylinders, turn or replace drums, new hardware, new quality pads, and make sure to replace hoses too....then reassemble, adjust and forget about them for the next 60K miles.

The fronts, you kinda asked for the problems you got, so suck it up and do it right this time.

Shame on you for just slapping pads in there and not turning rotors, and repacking bearings, replacing calipers, hoses, maybe even master cylinder and fersure not flushing old fluid.

Give Black Magic Brakes on here a call and let him suggest effective and least expensive fix. Yeah, you might go with the Vanco big brake setup in the end, but Man you ain't tasted plain old properly working stock brakes yet.

I use Mr Blaine's kit BlackMagicBrakes.com in front and his pads in my 8.8. I have 35's, and I am really happy with the performance. Check them out !
