Just put a 3.5 rubicon superflex lift with 35s on a stock 02 Sahara. Any recommendations for brake adjustments/upgrades needed? Not looking to go all out, something economical.
X2, I had the Vanco Big Brake upgrade kit from www.vancopbs.com on my previous (stolen) TJ & it worked great to restore the braking performance lost due to the larger diameter 35" tires. I wish I could afford that kit again for my replacement TJ.easy choice - Vanco brake upgrade from Savvy Off-Road. Bigger calipers, bigger rotors and Black Magic Pads.
I'm running the 15" kit with upgraded 48mm dual piston calipers, with BMB pads and it stops better than a bone stock rig, in all conditions.
Did you keep stock calipers or did you do the black magic upgrade as well?Definitely. I couldn't afford the full Vanco Big Brake kit for my present TJ after having had it on my previous (stolen) TJ so I went with just the Black Magic pads for my 35's for now. Big noticeable improvement in braking performance.
