Tundra to Tacoma brake swap feasibily?

Is it feasible to swap brakes from a Tundra 4x4 with TRAC/ATRAC to replace 2nd Gen Tacoma brakes on a TRD Offroad TRC/ATRAC equipped vehicle? I know the older non ATRAC equipped Tacos could swap to older non ATRAC equpped Tundra brakes but not sure about the ATRAC equipped versions? ANyone ever heard of this being done before?

Forgive my ignorance but are the tundra brakes that much better?

Tundra brakes are bigger, but I doubt the Taco needs them.

Doesn't the tundra have a different lug pattern. Isn't that why you don't see people rocking tundra rims.

I assume you are referring to swapping the rear brakes?

I have tundra brakes on my 01 dbl cab. I do notice a difference with them. Before I was going through brakes (not just cheap ones). But now they last way longer. Especially if you tow/haul with your Pickup. Their worth the swap imo.

Well it appears older Tundras had the same bolt pattern as Tolder Tacomas. The new Tundras are 5 lug. The Tundra brakes are about an inch larger rotor and disk rear. THat would have been a great upgrade along with new pads but it seems like most people are pretty happy with just new pads, lines, and fluid that have lifted trucks.

I would just get a good set of rotors and pads since I'm sure Tundra brakes would be a pain in the ass to install on a 2nd gen. Some have swapped to rear disc with negative results.

I really see no reason to mess with a system that obviously isn't broken. The Tacoma's stopping distances are among the best in its class. The brakes don't need upgrading people.

Upgrading isn't Just for stopping distance, its for the extra life you get out of tundra pads vs stock tacoma, worth it I think. Atleast for automatic trucks that can't just shift down all the way to stop. Example. Me and my brother. Same trucks. I have tundra brakes. he doesn't: since my swap he's wore out 2 sets of pads. I'm still Workin on the first. But as far as swappin in newer tacos. Outta my league.

They need upgrading of some sort if you lift and put 33"+ tires, espcially heavy tires like Nittos/Toyos and if you use steel wheels, toolbox, winch, plate bumpers, if you tow heavy loads, etc.
