I recently installed some awesome upgraded brakes to the truck after adding a double lift and 35's on my '01 4x4.
Bought them from ModBargains.com, a Ranger-Forums preferred vendor. Customer service and the purchase was through Alon Mahller, a long time member of Ranger forums, not just this one. Alot of AIM talking on the product and how he likes his on his truck, great guy. If you ever needed info, you can just AIM him and bam he's there to answer any question you had on ModBargains products.
The brakes I went with, was the StopTech Stage kit, which included StopTech slotted rotors, Centric Posi Quiet pads, and Motul RBF 600 brake fluid. Under $300 for the kit. While there I also ordered up a 3x30' ProComp strap.
The swap was very straight forward as ive done it many times. I had new pads on before, crappy econo replacements just to get me by with a solid axle swap in the very near future, which isn't happening. Then I lifted the truck, needed better stopping power. AND WOW, they are AWESOME! Espicially during the "bed in" process(35-5 x10 @ normal braking, 60-5 x10 at 90% braking). Those 60mph to 5mph runs were fun! Immediately felt the difference. Stops great even with big heavy 35's and steel wheels. I would compare it to stopping as good as being a stock height, stock tire truck! Stops even better because before these brakes, but after the superlift, I had the caliper in the wrong set of holes on the superlift knuckle! So less friction material grabbing onto the disc, thus causing the odd wear marks on the disc in the below pics, and less braking period.
I suggest this product to anyone that has a need for new rotors anyway, and need new pads anyway. HIGHLY suggested to any lifted ranger, espicially on 35's. Up the tire size, also gotta up the braking power. Great product. Great people(Alon). Go out...Getcha some!
Item: StopTech Stage Kit for 01-08 Ranger/B-series
After: (First pic taken with caliper bracket located in incorrect set of holes, that's when i discovered my wrong w/ the superlift install)
