    Hey all, is there a good caliper and rotor upgrade or big brake kit out there for an 01 std cab 5 lugger. Also is there anyone who makes a disc brake conversion for the rear to replace the rear drum brakes?

    There is a guy here that does only street performance stuff for 5 lugs... I can't for the life of me remember his screen name. Maybe he'll show up

    (mostly on CT,but he is on TacomaWorld too)

    SpeedFreak is designing a big brake kit currently..almost done.
    There are a few one off kits that some people will re-produce for the right amount of money.

    A couple companies sell kits but they aren't cheap..like $2300.

    Rear disc brake kit in the works too(for show, but will function great too also).

    Cool, would love a heads up when these are available. Not spending 2300 for a kit thanks :)

    SpeedFreaks kit is gonna be basic..you buy what you need to mount the brakes up then you buy the lines and rotors/pads you want..stainless lines, slotted/drilled, EBC green pads, etc.


    I forgot what it was gonna roughly cost but there is a huge thread on CustomTacos about it.


    The DIY rear kit uses Mustang front brakes or some shit like that..their is a thread on it on CustomTacos as well..or ask around for a guy named Racer-X...he knows alot about the Mustang rear disc swap..he did it to his Taco.
