Upgrading Brakes on 2014 GC 5.7 Limited - Looking for options
Greetings all! New to the forums and 2-time GC owner. I just got a hold of my 2014 GC Limited 5.7L with 20' wheels. Beautiful ride, amazing transmission, great power.
Here's the deal, I live in Latin America and things are a bit dangerous here, so armoring your car here is pretty standard. I'd be getting a level 3 bulletproof armoring with 25mm glass windows and kevlar (+ other materials) body protection good for 9mm. This adds about 400-500 lbs of weight to the car. It's basically like riding around with 3 extra guys all the time.
Even though performance isn't sacrificed too much, I do plenty of long-distance in very dangerous curvy roads. Even though I won't be doing any crazy driving, I need all the braking power I can get, so I need to get my brakes upgraded, even though the armoring dealer says it won't be necessary.
1. Would the GC SRT Brembo kits work? How would I go about acquiring the whole package? I'd do the SRT Brembo swap but it seems to add wheel complications. I don't mind getting the SRT rep wheels.
2. Any other after-market performance brake kits for the GC? Can't find anything online, as there are no official options for the GC.
3. Do I need to upgrade brake lines, fluids, etc?
Any information would be helpful, especially in terms of compatibility, prior experience with installations, etc. Shipping isn't an issue. I'll ship to Miami.
Thank you all.
