    Sounds like a great idea... That would definitely provide enough stoping power!

    There are write ups on here about using 4 runner 4 piston calipers and bigger rotors for a inexpensive BBK.

    may have to search back to like 2009-2010

    Are the calipers on a 2wd not 4-piston? They are on my 93 4wd, but maybe that’s because it’s 4wd.

    The common brakes upgrade I remember is using v6 parts and/or 60-series cruiser parts - like the discs and calipers since they’re larger diameter. New braided brake lines to replace the flexible sections so they don’t bulge under pressure. Then upgrade to the bigger bore 1” master cylinder and I think the v6 dual diaphragm brake booster. You can also swap out the rear LSPV to a manual controller to tinker with f/r braking.

    Rear you could swap to disc brakes, I think people use the solid axle brake parts or order one of the kits - but either way you’ll still have to weld up a mounting plate to the axle housing. You also lose your stock parking brake unless you get something that can accommodate

    So I finally got around to doing some local part store shopping research the 95 taco have a different pattern the the 1994 down pickup model but the hubs appears to be the same ill see about fabbing my own brackets up and ordering my the brake calibers and making a mock up bracket I saw the other form jetas and thank but I dont like the way the wildwood brakes are mounted and I've already have wheels that are in spec with everything they are 18x 9.5 and im still running a 1 inch spacer lol I plan to go lower but can afford to push the wheel out no more then what it is
