after market brakes
i was looking to get some new brakes for the bigger rims im putting on my truck and i was lookin at the EBC ULTIMAX BLACKDASH BRAKE ROTORS and some red brake pads. i was wondering if i would have to buy any thing else

If you want to upgrade the performance and pedal feel even more, you should look into some braided steel brake lines to replace the factory rubber.

EBC is a great choice
I personally will be getting the GREEN STUFF pads
700s on the front & 600s on the back, i believe that is the combo many members use & had the best luck with

is that all that is needed. just the rotors and the pads or do u have to redo everything

Just rotors and pads.

I am looking to get some slotted roters for my truck soon as well.I did hear that you can change to the slotted roters and use some decent pads and you will tell a huge difference.I have Braided break lines they came with my BDS kit.

If you're looking to upgrade, I wouldn't use the red pads, it's the EBC 'base model'. I would recommend the greenstuff pads as you can put the 7000 series in the fronts and they last a LOT longer than either the redstuff or 6000series greenstuff pads. I run the greenstuff pads with my forged 22" rims and they have some serious bite while being quiet and no dust. The USR rotors are also good if you don't want the dimpled sports rotors.

Now might be a good time to upgrade your brakelines to stainless if you have the $$ to do it. Check out this site here if you're interested

yep, braided hoses are always good, better feel, and take abuse from stuff if your offroading etc.. but for day to day stuff just pads n rotors are fine

ebc sport rotors and ebc green 7000 upfront and 6000 in the rear. wicked stopping power.
