Do your old rims have any decent BFG AT 31x10.5x15 's on them? Looking for x2...

Thanks, Dale

Yes if you go with the larger rims it is possible to upgrade the front brakes. You will however need to change the disks and the calipers. The larger calipers just bolt on. If I were you I would rather consider doing a Powerbrake upgrade. I did it on my bakkie. a D4D and there was a huge improvement. You do not even need to use their disks with the grooves that serve to clear mud etc. from the disks. The real improvement lies in the brake pads they use which are Bendix pads made specifically for them. This will definitely be the cheaper option and I guarantee you will be impressed by how much better the bakkie will brake. http://www.powerbrake.co.za/category_s/3371.htm
