The Ford F-100 may be growing in popularity as it ages, but the same isn’t true for its outdated brake setup. Many classic F-100 trucks feature drum brakes instead of a modern disc brake system. If you aren’t doing a true restoration, you may want to consider purchasing F-100 restomod brakes.
Disc brakes perform better and last longer than drum brakes. Drum brakes can also experience brake fade and don't work as well in wet conditions. Disc brake kits from Baer Brakes, Wilwood, and Master Power use high-quality materials that will dissipate heat better, improve braking power, and last longer.
If you’re switching from drums, disc brake conversion kits make the transition easier. They contain the calipers, brake pads, rotors, brake hoses, and the hardware you need to complete the install. Disc brake kits are available for the front and rear.
Besides brakes, other popular F-100 restomods include engine upgrades and suspension mods.
