Oh that sounds awesome if you could do one especially under the current market costs. I'm sure others can chime in on that.

I installed/pieced together the kit from SOS. I really liked that the majority of the parts came from the 4runner. It makes things easy to replace, if needed. The only custom piece was the backing plate. They had changed their kit a little to utilize the OEM parking brake cable instead of the 4runner cable. Fundamentally, there's nothing wrong with what they did, but in order to make it happen, it involves a small piece on the cable barrel. I can just see it getting lost at some point. I also used their Sequoia master cylinder adapter. Again, nice using OEM parts. Couple of things that irritated me about it where the brake lines that they provided and the push rod. The kit is meant to be used on other models, so these two parts were "adjustable." They work, just not nicely. I ended up using braided lines off the master cylinder for the pretty and so I could mess with the push rod without having to bleed the brakes everytime.

My two biggest issues with the kit were the very horrible instructions (not just installation, but bleeding as well). I mean really bad. And the other issue was the cost of their complete kits. The reason I pieced everything together was because I ended up saving a few hundred dollars. Other than that, it's been working fine on my truck for over six months.

Thems my two pennies.

Hi Dave.

Thank you for the feedback, using OEM parts is always ideal in situation like this, and that's what we would aim to design the kit to utilize as many stock components as possible.

Great to see you guys are looking into this kind of a kit. My truck is quite heavy and anything to help it stop better is a huge advantage. I'd be interested if you came to market with a setup. I'm not so concerned with colored calipers as much as improved stopping and heat dissipation.

Hey guys, Sam here,

We've been asked few times on BBK's, and with looking into the rear disc conversion, would you guys be interested if we were to offer a front 4runner brake kit? the kit would consists of:

-2x new 4runner calipers
-2x 338mm 4runner rotors
-Set of our Rocky pads
-Brake lines, and OEM dust shield.

If so, at what price point would you guys like to see this kit to be sold at? I would need realistic feedback on this.

Cheers.

Not sure what's good price but they'll need 17 inch wheels or bigger.

My first questions would be is the 4Runner stuff a direct bolt over, and if so are they an improvement? Then if so are they compatible with the Tacoma master cylinder.

I love the idea of a better brake kit for the ?. That said it all has to balance and obviously be an improvement.

I'd expect a lot like this to easily be over a grand. Couple that with a rear disk conversion and easily double.
