So I put 37"tires on and love the look, need to upgrade a few things, and brakes are top of the list. I have heard black magic brake pads are a must, so probably gonna get those for sure. ? Here is my issue, I was wanting to run RCV axles, I like the lifetime warranty and they are almost unbreakable. Does anyone make a dual piston caliper that will work with that setup? Is it possible I could try a good centric rotor and BMB first with stock caliper and see how it works, and if it doesn't work then just buy a dual piston caliper.

Should I scratch the rcv axles, and just go with 16" BBk from vanico and be done with it and when I need front axle upgrade just use Yukon or something with some high end ujoints like spicer? Open to ideas, not wanting to spend tons of money, but want it right, I don't do much off roading because I hate fixing broke parts that should last alot longer, and that's just me, I know others love jeepin, for me I just like riding around in a jeep with my little girl, her ear to ear smile is worth it. I also drive the jeep daily to work. Stopping is a must.
If it wasn't for the RCV upgrade I want I would just go vanco, but hate to spend the money if BMB and a good rotor will work too???

Yea forget the axles and go for the Vanco brake kit. Savvy has them and Mr. Blaine, aka Black Magic Brakes, can hook you up. If you cannot stop your vehicle it does not matter how great your axle shafts are. 37s are way too big for the stock brakes.

Or if you really want RCV axles you could get the AEV brake it and black magic pads...excellent combo. Only downside is Im not sure if 15” rims will fit with the 16” kit.
