Another Brake Question.

I have searched over the forum but have not found a conclusive answer. I have a 2012 2 dr JK and plan on putting on 34" tires, front and back bumpers (with tire carrier) , MBRP roof rack and will occasionally be hauling a dirt bike off the hitch receiver. Further, I live in the mountains with a lot of steep inclines and therefore declines.
Question? Do the stock rotors, calipers and pads, with all of the extra weight to be added, have the power to stop as thought the extra weight were not there ro would there be considerable heat build up and therefore fade. Or, would I need just new pads or perhaps rotors and pads or would i need a whole new system. Further did the brake components on the 2012 differ from that on the 2010 because on many sites I do not see brake components for the 12. Thanks for the great and informative answers I am expecting!

Brakes are unchanged for the 2012 as far as I know. The JK's brakes can handle what you're planning.
