I decided to spruce things up behind the wheels and maybe add a little performance.




:D



Comparison next to a Heineken bottle for size. These things are MASSIVE! 14"!



Check out the thickness.



Big thanks to rnrxss (Steve) for the deal. These are scheduled to be installed this Saturday.

Thanks! I will be taking pictures for sure once they are installed:thumbsup:

those looks awesome
Thanks!

any way to get a set of those for 6 luggers?
I don't believe there are any kits for 6 luggers. You got big brakes from the factory though. Much better than the under powered 10" single piston brakes that come on the 5 luggers:ugh3:

yeah we have bigger brakes but also a heavier vehicle aswell, being a double cab long box.
I know they make a BBK for the FJ which is a 6 lugger and shares the same bolt pattern as you. Wonder if it could be adapted to the Tacoma:whatthe:

I was just playing anyway. I know ALL about how expensive brakes are unfortunately with the track car :thumbsdow

Gotta love having friends that can get you junk for wholesale though. I'd either have less junk into the car or I'd be eating KD every day if I didn't :D

Let us know how it worked out. With the added weight on my truck, this would be a helpful addition. Can you get them in 6/5.5

The slots are to try and prevent brake fade and allow a place for gasses to escape.
Slotted rotors also help dissipate water and deglaze the pads allowing for a better bite.
