Yeah that will make a difference as well. Those rears are supposed to help.

Default Re: way to upgrade 4x4 brakes?

You and your buddy must have some very bad brake problems with the system. I had to do a quick stop yesterday picking up my ranger from the ford dealership & I stopped just fine. And my brother was right behind me in his 4.0 2011 and it stopped just fine as well.

Edit: Read the rest of the posts, good job of fixing the issue, tell your buddy to fix his as well. My Ranger stops just fine, however my brothers '11 with 4x-disc brakes stops on a dime. Best braking car/truck I've ever been in. Feel like it has racing brakes&rotors.
