When I changed the stock rims for the ones I have for now (17") back in 2001, the truck never stopped the same, now imagine with a v8 and turbo. That's when I knew I wanted big brakes for my truck. But unfortunately all of us know that Wilwood and other brake companies don't care about making big brakes for the rangers, except for revolutionbrakes.com they make kits for probably all the cars.

Anyways here are some pics of my brake project. As of now I can only do the rear side first, because I don't have the fron't rotors and brackets yet.
I should be getting them next week (Can't wait)


This is the kit that I bought. It has an internal parking brake.


This is my Ford 9+ rearend, axle removed


The parking brake and caliper bracket goes first


Then the axle goes in


I had to cut the OEM axle retainer and installed the wilwood retainer since the caliper bracket is thicker


Next, the rotor and the caliper are installed






And that's how it looks

this is the front caliper which is a lot bigger than the rear ones. Both front and rear calipers have 4 pistons.


I haven't tested them yet since I don't have the complete front kit and I don't have the back lines yet, and I need to flush the system also.

I will post pictures of the front kit as soon as I get them!

^^ I've driven it on the streets, but I can't record it every time but now I have an issue with the front suspension. Every time I go over a bump past 20 or 25 mph I hear a "clunk" so bad that I feel it on the floor, and it's coming from the passenger side. I've check tie rods, spring, shock absorber with no luck, right now the only thing left to do that I can think of is changing the passenger ball joint.

Thanks!
As for my problem, I found out what it was, the damn brake caliper bolt were like 1/2 turn loose from tight which is not visible. As I was going to change the ball joints, I have to remove the caliper when I found it out. Right now I have a base tune which I think I'm pusing around 500 to 600 hp but I could definitely be wrong.

Here's a couple of pics of the front brakes.

This thing is a beast. I have seen the build on RPS, but its nice here too. I have been staying on TRF mostly, but thought I'd see what was new here. If you have a ipod touch or Iphone, you can buy a program called dynolicious and it will give you your 0 to 60, 100ft, 1/8 mile, 1000ft, 1/4 mile, gforce, and if you put in the weight of the truck and do your run on flat ground no incline or decline it will give you an approx. rwhp. Good to see your still at this. You should join turborangerforums.com too. Sure they would like you there. all 4 bangers, but all ford too.
