Since the added power and weight of the Hemi conversion I thought it would be a good idea to improve the brake performance of my JK even more so with 37" Tyres. After comparing  the options on the market I decided to go for the Dynatrac ProGripPerformance Brake Kit.

 

This kit fits bigger Discs, bigger Caliper brackets and better pads to all 4 wheels and there is no need to disconnect the Calipers from the brake lines.

 

I was initialy tempted to go for the Terraflex Big Brake Kit but:

 

- Because my JK is a 2008  I would have had to replace the Master Cylinder as well so the new M C would not be recognised by the ECU unless I take the Jeep to a Dealership to have it initialised / Synced.

 

- The Terraflex Front kit + Master Cylinder cost almost the same price as the Dynatrac Progrip Kit so I would have had to Fork out more money to get the Terraflex Rear Kit.

 

- Performance wise both Kit offer a 30% improvement to the standard brake performance.

Hi Neal,

 

To fit this kit you need at least 17" wheels with 4.75" backspace or Stock Rubicon wheels with 1.50" spacers.

 

With my 17" Dick Cepek the discs are really close to the inner Rim but there is enough clearance.

 

If your wheels counterweights are fitted on the outer edge you will have to take them to the garage to have them removed and get your wheels re-balanced with counterweights fitted closer to the wheel hub otherwise you can't clear the discs.

 

I watched the Wayalife Film for Dynatrac and the Terraflex Big Brake Kit both are on YouTube.

X2, didn't know of these as an option. They look a very promising option, especially with no bleeding or M C change.  :great:

You're welcome Gents !

 

I thought it was worth mentioning this Brake kit as it is better value for money and less hassle than the Terraflex kit.

Hi Jim,

 

You know me I am not trying to give a bad name to Terraflex special!y since I have met with Dennis in 2014 in Chambon.

 

But if you compare the pros and cons and if you want a 4 wheels upgrade instead of a front wheels only then in my humble opinion the Dynatrac kit is better.
