    So I installed my Toyo MT's and I love them but my braking has becoming alot worse. I was hoping to get some recommendations on new brake pads. Also is there a stainless steel front brake line kit? I would upgrade the rears to stainless at the same time if there was. What do you guys think?

    Well I did actually search and looking at the G-Stop kit. If I plan on lifting the truck is this kit enough for both front and rear (enough for rear flex)?

    Wheelers Offroad has front and rear (extended) lines. I'll be using Motul DOT4 fluid. (little higher boiling point so a little better fade resistance under heavy braking loads. A well done bleed for the brake system is crucial too.

    Hawk and EBC both make decent pads. IDK about upgraded rotors or anything...but those things oughta get you more comfy...

    no problem man, and you will notice a good difference changing the stock pads and rotors.
