As you take on more intense off-roading challenges, you’ll want to increase the stopping power of your Jeep Wrangler. That’s especially true if you’re overlanding and carrying lots of gear. With a big brake kit, you can upgrade several key components of your Wrangler’s braking system at once.
Big brake kits contain larger brake pads, rotors, and calipers. These three pieces together are able to provide a stronger clamping force and a larger surface area. That means better braking.
If you’re having to hold your brake a lot or make hard stops, your brakes can overheat. As brakes heat up, they lose that firm grip you want. Rotors that are designed to dissipate heat can stand up to hard braking for longer. That means not having to cut your off-roading excursion short! Depending on how large a brake you’re looking at, you may need some larger wheels to go with it. Make sure to check the product descriptions of big brake kits for an idea of how large your wheels need to be. Fortunately, big wheels and a lift kit only accentuate the great look of a big brake kit.
