    I'm running that kit, works great and brake dust isn't that bad. After warping two sets of oem rotors I went to this and haven't had an issue since.

    Good to know, thanks!

    While I love my 2014 Tacoma, the braking definitely feels like it's a bit lacking.

    How are those BFG 34s working out for ya? If you don't mind, could you measure how tall they sit on your truck? Getting mixed results in my search. Thanks!

    I run this kit for a year and a half now. Good upgrade from stock. Also do stainless steel braided lines made a good difference. New fluid also. Stops great now with weight and 33s

    Why would you buy the stage 4 kit, and then also buy the green pads? Why not just buy the stage 3, that comes with the green pads and is cheaper?

    How hard was it to bleed the brakes once you changed the lines to SS? Kind of a pain on a motorcycle so I figured it'd be worse in a truck.

    Because I've done absolutely no research on the topic yet. ;)

    Actually I found this product through a video on youtube and this is exactly what that guy purchased ... so I guess he didn't think it out too hard ahead of time.

    I'm running their sport rotors and green stuff pads. Just installed them a couple weeks ago, been very happy so far.
