While many late-model pickup trucks have extremely sophisticated and highly effective brake systems, off-road and diesel truck enthusiasts are of a mind to augment and modify their vehicles from almost the very moment they drive them off the dealer lot.
These modifications such as larger wheels and tires, suspension kits, heavy duty bumpers, powertrain and drivetrain upgrades, roof racks, and other assorted accessories can add hundreds of pounds of extra weight to those factory trucks, placing a greater burden on the braking systems.
That’s where Stainless Steel Brakes Corporation (SSBC) comes in to help out the off-road and diesel truck enthusiast with a wide variety of innovative brake system upgrade products for pickups and SUVs. SSBC is no Johnny-come-lately either, as the company first pioneered the stainless steel sleeved caliper for classic Corvettes and Mustangs back in 1975.
SSBC has been delivering industry standard, high quality brake systems and components ever since, and continues to develop new disc brake conversions and performance brake upgrades for vehicles ranging from classic muscle cars to street rods and customs to light trucks of all types.
One of its most exciting products for the off-road and diesel market is the Truck Stop Program. Products in the line go from stock size slotted rotor and pad upgrades to quick-change aluminum caliper upgrades to larger-than-stock 14-inch rotor upgrades that reuse the stock caliper to complete performance upgrade systems with multi-piston aluminum calipers, slotted rotors, and high-performance pads for trucks using 18-inch or larger wheels. These brake performance upgrade kits are available for thousands of 1/2-, 3/4- and 1-ton truck applications, so contact SSBC for detailed information concerning your specific vehicle.
