    I have seen a few options for Brake Pads (TRD) and Power Stop and Brake Tech with Pads and Rotors included.

    What other options are available for additional stopping power?

    Why do you want to upgrade? What are you looking to improve on? My 5th gen OEM pads and rotors stop better than any vehicle I have ever owned.

    Safety First. Just like any other vehicle, once you start adding the bigger Tires / Wheels, Bumpers, Winch and other modifications that add on to the overall weight, there is always room for improvement in the braking power potential.

    The 4-Wheel Power Disc brakes on these 4Runners are great to start off with. But, even maybe a 10-20% improvement with better Pads / Rotors would be huge.

    Very cool. I've seen the Stop Tech before.

    Any products in particular that you recommend? Your review?

    I had the Stop Tech drilled and slotted on my 3rd gen and really liked them, but i try not to do alot of mud, and some think they get clogged up, but never had a problem. For my 5th gen i will probably go with the slotted, but that's just me.
