The calipers on your truck are relatively large. They are actually larger than the calipers used on FJ60 Landcruisers, which only weigh about 1800 pounds more than your truck.

Why do you want to replace them? For the bling or some other reason?

Body Damage is Cool
Call me crazy but I am pretty darn happy with my stock OEM Aisin calipers with toyota pads. Not sure why you want or need crossdrilled rotors and upgraded calipers on a truck that can't get out of its own way. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cyclops.gif" alt="" />

Serious, there is much better stuff to spend your money on if you want to build up your truck. Unless your next mod after that is to show off those new rotors and calipers through some 22s. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif" alt="" />

Roll Me Over
What are you going to AutoCross a 4x4 truck? You have big brakes and big calipers. If you are going to wheel it in the mud you are going to hate those drilled rotors, they pack with mud and grit and wear the pads out real fast.
