    So far no noticeable difference than what I had on there, but I'm sure they will settle a little more over time. Ill be doing some mountain driving next week that should be a good test.

    Looking forward to hearing what you think. I've been looking for an upgrade that won't break the bank.

    I have the kit on for a few more months now. I feel like they perform only slightly better in the road. But coming out of the mountains this past weekend loaded down with three dudes, hunting gear and two 120 qt coolers full of ice there was no brake overheating as in the past.
    Personally, I wouldn't add them just because...I would add them only when due for a replacement. The drilled and slotted rotors look nice though.

    I tried the power stop pads with the stock rotors and got great results stopping wise. However after about 5-6 months got a horrible screeching noise. Took them off and deposited in the trash. Using posi quiets now. Been quiet but not as good of a bite stopping wise.

    Drove through some mountains the past few days. Descended about 6000ft in 20 or so miles on the way back. Brakes are quiet and strong. Didn't really feel any fade towards the bottom of the mountain either. So far so good.

    I recently installed these as well, my impressions is that when they are cold, they are worse than stock, but once warmed up grab better and work quite well.

    Looks great!

    Thinking up upgrading to the 2010+ 4Runner calipers/rotors and EBC pads when the time comes.

    I have seen many people mention using 2 bolts to push the rotor off if it is rusted on. Nobody has mentioned what size these are though....
    I ordered the Power Stop kit and want to have the bolts handy incase needed. Kinda hard to drive to the hardware store once i start taking the truck apart.

    Have had the pads and Rotors on my truck over a year now, and they still stop great! I don't haul a trailer very often, but the few times I have, these brakes have had more then sufficient stopping power.

    Nice!! I got the same brake rotors and pads too - very satisfied ! I like how you took it up a notch with painting the caliper black!

    Looks good! I’ll have to consider this when it’s time to swap my fronts out.
