Re: VANCO Big Brakes and U Turn steering

This was the caliper I was originally looking into with a stagger piston size and a large pad area. https://www.wilwood.com/Calipers/Cal...-13230&appid=0

That is indeed very interesting. I had a similar setup from GoJeep. http://gojeep.willyshotrod.com/

I have since replaced the rotors and calipers keeping only the mounting brackets. With only very slight modifications to the brackets, my XJ have been fitted with rotors and calipers from the first generation Jeep WK.

Thats the caliper they use for the kit and I thought about using it as well and making a bracket to be able to use it but I was told the way this is designed it will fit 15 inch rims where that one wont

VANCO Big Brakes and U Turn steering

So I'm sure everyone has heard of the 4link calculator right? Well there's also a break calculator made by the same people. You can find it on busted knuckle off-road website.... It's free and simple to use. There's a video explaining it as well. Might get y'all a starting point.

Re: VANCO Big Brakes and U Turn steering

Also love the Vanco BB kit for 16" wheel's. That, plus the Durango MC upgrade made a huge difference in my stopping power on 33's.
