We think you'll agree, stopping is important. It's not glamorous, but if your truck has large wheels, is lifted, or tows something that is valuable to you, upgrading your brakes is a must. For the average truck owner, big brakes may not be a feasible solution to stopping your custom truck. Whether it's the high cost, fear of installation, or simply not knowing the huge benfits, big brakes aren't for everyone. Thankfully, there is a solution that meets in the middle. Much better brake performance can be had without the multi-thousand-dollar investment, and the best news is, you can do it yourself in less than two hours. EBC Brakes is known worldwide as a leader in brake technology and their application list is longer than your favorite restaurant's menu.
Disc and pad upgrades for Chevy/GMC, Ford, Dodge, Nissan, Toyota, Mazda minis or fullsizes are all available. Because of it's incredible coverage, we knew that EBC would have what we needed for our '04 Ford Ranger that we transformed through out Fantastic Four treatment in August of last year. Upgrading from 15-inch to 20-inch wheels quickly taxed the factory brakes and after a few thousand miles, the pads and rotors were toast. One call to EBC had a new pair of 3GD Series Sport Rotors and Yellow Stuff high-performance brake pads. Precision-machined 3GD Series Sport iron rotors are zinc plated and feature wide aperture scraper slots to expel dirt, dust, and gases. They also have drilled holes to prevent heat cracks. Yellow Stuff pads incorporate similar compound technologies from EBC race pads and provide incredible cold "bite," and help lower your truck's stopping distances.
It was a simple upgrade for our little Ranger, but what a huge difference it made. If your truck is in need of a better braking system and you don't want to break the bank, check out EBC's full line of brake components.
