    Up for grabs is a Tundra brake upgrade, the 231mm calipers.

    This is the Power Stop kit you can see here:

    http://www.amazon.com/Power-Stop-K2952-Ceramic-One-Click/dp/B005FKE5OW

    The rotors and pads have around 8k miles, as you can see in the pics, the pads have plenty of life. The rotors also showed no signs of warpage, I don't think the 4runner is capable of warping them!

    One of the calipers has around 8k miles as well, it was a reman from Advanced Auto, and was unpainted, as you can tell by the mild surface rust.

    Just before my SAS one of the calipers seized and I had it warrantied by Advanced, it is a painted one (La-De-Da) And has maybe 500 miles on it.

    This is everything you need to complete the swap and have awesome braking power! It truly is amazing

    I am asking $285 shipped CONUS, if you are really close to NC I can bring the price down a bit due to the cheaper shipping rate.

    I will also run the rotors through our parts washer at work before I ship them.

    View the build. Too much to list.
    Wish I didn't just buy new rotors and pads. Might need to try and sell them and pick these up.

    Does it take any additional fabbing to get them to fit, or can anyone go get the calipers, rotors and pads off a wrecked tundra or something and slap them on a tacoma?

    You just need to grind the dust shield to fit the larger caliper, which might take 5 minutes a side. And you need to have 16" wheels to clear the calipers as well

    Do not think about it... Just do it! The difference is describable in words. You will wonder why you didn't die with the old brakes.

    Here is my right up, when I did mine, hope it helps someone decide that they CAN and SHOULD buy these. http://stouffer.me/M3/tacoma-big-brake-mod-tundra-brakes/
