Brake lines are on, total brake job is done. Rotors, caliper's & pads on all 4, 2 new front brake lines, 1 new back brake line. Pedal is consistent every time. Stops wicked fast. Life is good. :lol:

So, the new brake lines fixed the "pump once to have good brakes" issue ! :rockon:
Traded to 2019 ZR2, Red.

4Runner was a GREAT vehicle but could not even tow our 6x10 enclosed utility trailer comfortably, even when it was empty-ish.

It was time. Truck was still leaking BADLY every time it rained or snowed & melted. It was leaking at every single gasket (rear window, front window, all 4 doors). You could sit inside & watch it run down the inside of windshield, rear window & drip off the upper side door beams. It was molding on the inside & starting to stink. Needed new steering gearbox, shocks, new upgraded T-style steering, tires, brake lines, d/s manifold bolts that are barely recognizable due to rust-removed & replaced. Everyone around here would not even touch em once they looked at them.

So, say what you will. PW turned into a money pit. Was no longer a joy to drive. Hoping that this downsized 4x4 with lockers will fill the bill & have minimal problems, but..... As long as manufacturers keep making engineers design things that fail soon after warranty is up, we are going nowhere fast. Regardless of what you buy. :rockon:

That's great! Glad you're liking the new brakes Twin. I might need new lines then.

For some reason, I thought it was just the front lines. Guy said there was 1 rear as well, so he put it on. Cool ! Always good to get more than you expected. :rockon:

I don't like saying I told you so, so I will let someone else say it on behalf of me. :)

Those are the ones I used. 6" over stock, from CJC Off Road.

As far as the brakes, I got this: https://www.summitracing.com/parts/pwr- ... l/ram-2500 From Summit Racing.
It includes Rotors, pads & calipers for all 4.
Traded to 2019 ZR2, Red.

4Runner was a GREAT vehicle but could not even tow our 6x10 enclosed utility trailer comfortably, even when it was empty-ish.

It was time. Truck was still leaking BADLY every time it rained or snowed & melted. It was leaking at every single gasket (rear window, front window, all 4 doors).
