Bigger tires/wheels equate more unsprung weight which requires more stopping power. If u go with the 14" rotors in the front the diameter of the wheels need to be a minimum of 18" to clear. The complete kits run $1600-$3300 depending on yr and brake manufacturer. I see more kits made for the newer trucks so I'm gonna ck in with Wilwood to see if they have a 4 piston direct bolt on.

Anything bigger weighs more. U need bigger brakes to stop more weight. U need bigger wheels to clear the bigger brakes. All this costs bigger money.

Thank you for the information. But that looks out of my mechanic expertise. I would be too scared to do it myself. I would most likely do it incorrectly.
