B r a k e s -

Is there a better answer to an old question?

I'm going to do a big brake kit. Which one i'm going to do is the question. First and foremost "performance", which one is going to give me the best stopping power with as little noise? I care about durability and longevity, but whats going to be the safest?

And lets throw the gorilla in the ring... Why am I not going out and getting a rebuilt Ram 1500 kit with some new meat on them and calling it a discount day?

Let me hear your thoughts. Thanks,

Jeff B.

I ran the Dynatrac Big Brake kit on my 07 until I went to their 1-ton ProRock axles which came with bigger brakes. The kit performed extremely well for me.

Note: If you're running stock wheels you'll probably need wheel spacers.

Count me as a second for the Dynatrac Big Brake kit. I installed that as my rear pads were all but wore out. What a difference. I was thinking about Teraflex, Crown, etc. But at the end Dynatrac won at the end.

I can actually get the ABS to initiate when going from 30mph and mashing on the brake pedal now. This with 315/70/17s.

No experience with the Dynatrac kit. I installed the G2 Axle and Gear kit a few weeks ago and the difference is amazing. I suspect that the improvement is similar for any of the kits that retain the factory calipers and simply use larger rotors with longer brackets. I am running 17" AEV wheels with the standard 5.2" backspace and no spacers (35x12.5 tires) and have no clearance issues. Brake pedal feel is identical but I use far less pressure normally and can also kick in the ABS if I really get into the brakes.

I have a Crown kit and it's been fantastic. I turn 37's and pull a pop up camper and my JK stops on a dime now.

Full disclosure, I also upgraded the brake booster and master cylinder with the Mopar Performance parts.

I run a Crown kit with Mopar performance master cylinder and booster on my 2011 and three difference over stock is phenomenal.


I don't think a Ram 1500 bracket will bolt straight up, and I think it's the wrong bolt pattern on the rotors. The Crown kit does use those calipers, though.

Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Crown uses Ram 1500 calipers but has 5x5 13" rotors and the correct bracket to mount the Calipers to a JK.

You can't just bolt the Ram calipers to a JK.

I'm also loving the Dynatrac kit. Super easy install since there's no need to bleed the system. If you're running 35s it's more than enough braking performance. On 37s it's still great but I could see going to something with a larger caliper.

My friend is installing the Bear 6 piston kit so I'll have to do a comparison.

Not to derail - One thing about the Dynatrac - I dont really like the "fit" of the rear pads. From what I can remember the pads appear to sit just outside the rotor diameter (meaning the rotor and pad arent making 100% contact). Anyone else see that?

Not true at all otherwise there would not be a ridge on the outside of the disk and there is.

Since you have a 2012+, which have a larger bore master cylinder you could get away with doing the crown/teraflex kit without having to switch to the j8 master cylinder and booster set. If you haven't upgraded your brake lines yet, that would be an ideal time to do all of it and not be any extra work. I ran the teraflex front kit and stock rear brakes with EBC yellowstuff pads for a couple years with 38" and 40" tires, I was pleased with how it stopped. If you have already done extended brake lines, just go with the dynatrac g2 or terflex big rotor kits. I now have 2014 super duty axles, which have massive 14.5" rotors and huge calipers and have no problem with fade or slowing down a heavy pig jku with 42" tires going downhill. In my opinion, any of the uber expensive kits from brembo, alcon, baer, etc are a waste of money to put into factory jk axles, they just aren't worth putting that much money into.

I have the Crown kit. I had it for 1 week and upgraded w/ the mopar Brake Booster/ Master Cylinder on my 2012. It did make a huge difference. Overall i'm very happy. I feel very confident on steep angles. My driving habit changed too as i don't leave space like a truck driver.

Let me know what you think of the Baer setup, I'm interested in the pro setup front and back.
Lot of Jack , but I really appreciate good brakes.

Yes, but if you want to take it to the next level you have to spend a disproportionate amount to get those incremental gains. The Baer pro setup is pricey at $4200. Not many reviews, but since my wife got a new BMW with a M package, I have severe brake envy. I'm running the mopar kit up front and the smaller 13" teraflex rotor kit in the rear on my medium weight, minimally lifted two door. It stops great with light 33" a/t tires. Just not fixed six piston caliper and two piece rotor great.............

So I decided to go with the Mopar booster kit up front (why they don't have a rear set up/I don't know) and dynatrac in the rear. Based on what I'm seeing, its the best bang for the buck. Not the best, not the cheapest, but over-all a safety cost analysis that makes sense. $4200? I can buy a tj with that and run it until it dies (which has crossed my mind) and then push it down the hill for one more ride (brake lines optional on last ride).

No love for the teraflex big rotor or big brake kits around here I guess.

I've been running the big rotor kit front & rear with 35s for almost 2 years now, brake performance has remained excellent (although I did replace pads at the same time).

I have the Teraflex kit with calipers on front and the rear rotor kit on back. The difference is night and day. I have a 14jku so I didn’t have to replace the master cylinder. Had already upgraded brake lines, definitely do it all at the same time, I went ahead and had a brake fluid flush done as well. I got a great deal with Jason @Krawl Off-Road

I like the TeraFlex kit. For me it was between the TeraFlex kit and the DynaTrac kit. In the end I went with the DynaTrac kit. But I think either kit will work fine.
I think most people don't need to replace the calipers. Simply running bigger rotors will likely give most people enough extra braking power. And the kits that only replace the rotor with a larger rotor and a bracket to relocate the caliper are cheaper and easier to install. That said, anyone who wants to go the extra mile and upgrade the calipers, go for it. But that is a can of worms most don't need to open in my opinion.

I ran the Teraflex big brake front and big rotor rear on my 17 with 37s. I’ll probably run the same setup again on the new build. Zero complaints with the TF brakes.

I run 37's with the MOPAR BBK up front and teraflex kit in the rear. No brake noise, and I can stop quickly while pulling my trailer.

That is probably the best bang for the buck decision you are making. I run similar, at the time dynatrac was just selling their kit for all four wheels. I literally got my order delivered and then they started selling the rear setup separately. i would look into the G2 rear setup and save about $150. All usa sourced and manufactured. Only difference is the G2 is slightly slotted rotors. I screwed up and went with the teraflex rear, which turned out quickly to be pure garbage. Live and learn.Just make sure your wheels clear the new rotors first.

I run this setup on my medium weight two door Rubicon and it stops well, but I want to at least change the rear to better quality parts. If I go inexpensive it will be the G2 rear larger rotors and brackets. Toying with Baer Pros though on all fours. Hard to justify $4K+.......

What did you not like about the Teraflex rear kit?

This was my choice as well, Mopar booster and MC up front. Dynatrac kit in the rear. Couldn't be happier, Jeep stops on a dime.

First of all I bought the original rear tf which are only a 13" diameter, 1/2 inch larger than the stock rears. (my fault my research said they were only 12"s) They do now have 13.5" Secondly, the retaining hardware didn't fit correctly. which caused a drag on one wheel and that rotor runs hot. Then the finish on them "the center" rusted immediately in the first month of ownership when I washed the jeep. Looks horrible on my pristine jeep. Being on here and other forums for the past nine years and my personal experience with two of their products I realize TF has very poor quality control of their mainly imported "from china" products and have one hell of a good marketing team. Their shocks are domestic apparently, but I've seen hardware failure, they look gimmicky to me and of questionable design, no provenance and I would rather buy something that complicated from an experienced manufacturer. I can afford better products and my time is too valuable to waste installing junk. Reminds me of the JC Whitney catalog when I was a young pup. Just my opinion, I'm not a vendor or a shop getting free stuff, or discounts, just an experienced automotive enthusiast.

Interesting. My experience with them was great, but admittedly I didn’t have my last jk for long after i installed them. I’ve also seen the shock problems, which is unfortunate.

I can also afford to run better products and can’t stand replacing junk “upgrades”. Thanks for your feedback.
