Default Upgrading Brakes On Lifted Rangers?

Does anyone know what aftermarket brakes would help lifted ranger's w/ 35" tires, come to a stop easier and quicker than the stock brakes on a ranger? If so what kind of drum brakes and disc brakes- "Calipers and Rotors"?

a big help out back would be doing an exploder disc swap in the back, and getting vented rotors up front to help with brake fading. tht should be plenty, along side a good set of pads.

How do I do a drum brake to disc brake swap? would I be able to keep my current axle?

yeah you can keep your axle, there should be something in the how to section about the swap, i dont think it is really all that hard. if i was planning on keeping my axle i would have done it already.

What year ranger are we talking about? If its a TTB, you can either swap on the 2 piston front brakes from a 95-97. Or you can swap on D44 TTB knuckles for the bigger brakes.
