My Trekker has solid front rotors, and braking isnt what i hoped for. I have heard from other people hat you can swap the 4-piston brake caliper off of the late 1980's landcruisers and rotors from either a first gen tundra or 1998+ tacomas and install them in place of the original parts on the Trekker/ hilux/ pickups and get superior braking power. Anyone know if this is an easy conversion, or if it is extremely complicated? If this is a good idea, it may be something others on this website may think about doing.
By the way, whatever the case, or if you have any suggestions, i would prefer to keep with toyota parts, just for originality
I have had bad luck in the past with other vehicles I have owned where I used different manufacturer parts in place of original parts, i.e. ford parts on my mitsubishi.
I also have done a dual diaphram booster , 1" master steel braded lines , and custom rear discs .. now stops on a dime !! seriously , you need to be wearing your seat belt , or you'll go threw the windshield in my Trekker
