if youre 2 wheel drive then we already did all the work for you and priced it out in nice kits on our site

pads, hawk
rotors, power slot, spend the extra few bucks to get the Cryo rotors, it will be worth it in the long run

bob none of those items will fit his truck but the pads. Power Slot needs to get off their butt and make the 12" rotors already.

unless they finally came out with them.

none that i know of

you need the 12" rotors. which is 03+

i ended up getting some Napa rotors, and Napa ceramic pads, but i hear the hawk pads are good as well.

hawk hps pads coupled with powerslot rotors are an awesome combination, imo. i have an 03 and they had an application for my fronts, so they must have 12" rotors. they were the same size as my stock rotors... maybe 03's arent 12"?

brian its 03 and up 4wd, they have rotors that are one inch larger than previous years. as far as i know, even current 2wds still have the smaller rotors, which will work with what we have on the site

this is for 4wd

01-02 is 11.25" rotors
03+ is 12" rotors

some 03s could have the 11.25" rotors

The 4x4 change from 11.28" to 12" was made during the 2003MY, so you could have either size.

barrman is also 2wd, i think even the 06 2wd uses the smaller front rotors. ONLY the 4wds use the upgraded rotors
