I've been shadowing this forum for a while now, decided it was time to make my first post.
I have a stock 2003 Tacoma 4x4
My front rotors are shot and need to be replaced. Instead of paying the stealership I want to replace the brakes myself. I did this on my previous car (jeep grand cherokee) and upgraded to slotted/drilled rotors and heavy duty brake pads. I definately noticed the increased stopping power.
Before everyone gets on my ass about using the search button, I've already read several threads.
I drive to the mountains about 3x a week to snowboard, and occasionally will take her out on some small trails. This summer I intend to do a little more serious wheeling.
My question to you guys is should I upgrade to slotted/drilled rotors and heavy duty brake pads even though I'm running stock? I plan on lifting my taco and adding 33's to it eventually, probably this summer.
