customer review of the brake kit

There's a Jeep out in their parking lot so he shows me it installed. Looks great! He then hands me the Jeep and says "let's go for a ride!"

It's a 6.1L hemi swap meaning it get's out of it's own way in a hurry.

His exact words were "punch it and then slam on the brakes." Ok - twist my arm. I stand on the throttle, listen to the 6.1L wind up, then I timidly apply the brakes. Sorry - but I'm just not used to slamming on brakes. Bond says, "No, slam the brakes, it's ok!"

So I take the Jeep with it's 37" tires up to speed then hit the brakes as hard as I could...... HOLY ****! The Jeep comes to the quickest and safest stop I've felt since my Corvette! It didn't pull, chirp, or shutter. The Jeep just came to a quick as snot stop. The braking system didn't seem to struggle at all, it just worked!

Folks, this is one hell of an upgrade and is now on my wish list!
