Brake Conversion Kits


In general, the brake-conversion-kit market is geared toward high and improved performance brakes. So deciding whether to buy a conversion kit or gather parts from a junkyard or parts store depends largely on what you’re looking to get out of your conversion. The nice thing about conversion kits is that they save you the time and effort of hunting through junkyard wrecks and auto store parts bins to find what you need. Keep in mind that although there may not be a specific conversion kit available for your vehicle, there’s bound to be a compatible kit available or we can help you create one. Here are just a few Brake Conversion Kits that ExtremeTerrain carries for your convenience.

A kit is also available for axles using the new big Ford housing ends, such as TeraFlex high performance axles like the Tera44 Adventure axles, or Tera CRD 50R & 60Rs.

  1. I’m a small town mechanic who has recently started working on more and more Jeeps. That’s because they’ve opened an off road trail park very near here. I’ve got a lot of extra business and I’m very happy to read all you have available and know that I can get whatever part I need. Your site has been a God send for me.

  2. I could use new brakes, no doubt about it. I wish I could do it myself but I don’t have the tools to do it. I used to be able to go to my Dad’s and he’d help me, and he had all the tools. He retired and moved to Floriday a few months back. I need to find a new ‘friend’ who has all the tools and is willing to let me use them. Any volunteers?

  3. My boyfriend has started driving the more extreme offroad trails and a friend of his suggested he replace his brake system. He brushed it off, but I’m out here reading about it. I don’t want anything to happen to him or his Jeep. He’d be lost without it and to tell the truth I kind of enjoy it myself, although he won’t let me drive his ‘baby’! I’m going to mark this site and have him come out here and read about it himself.

  4. Appreciate all of the deals I find here. I’m going to have my brother help me change the brakes on the Jeep before the 4th of July bash. I’m just the gofer, he’s the mechanic. It works well for both of us. He’ll be working on his Jeep and mine at the same time to get them ready for the outing.

  5. When we moved to Arizona my Dad told me I should look into better brakes. Mine stopped me when I used them so I didn’t invest the extra money. Over time the wear and tear of the constant use of the brakes on the mountain trails wore mine pretty thin. They still stopped me on the road so I still did nothing. A couple of weeks ago I was on a wet steep patch of rocks and the brakes wouldn’t hold. Thankfully neither I nor the Jeep sustained any permanent damage. I did get the brake conversion kit installed after that.
