You cannot stop in 30 feet from 50mph without hitting a brick wall. You're reaction time at that speed is longer than 2 jeep lengths which is most of your 30 feet.

The average stopping distance after the brakes are applied from 60 is around 125 feet. Try again.

I may have been going a little slower then, but it damned sure didntt take me 125 feet. I stopped scary quick during brake tests. As far as reaction speed goes, I would hit speed and then stand on the brakes.

Very cool.

Any pictures of that installed? Does this mean that the knuckles require no machining? I imagine you just need to cut the "ears" off that the stock pads rest on? Do you drill or enlarge the existing holes to allow larger bolts for the Ram caliper saddle to mount?

Machine work is required on the knuckles.

Nope, just aluminum, the lines you see are set up marks from bolting it together for a test fit.

Very cool Blaine!

If I end up moving out to the desert(got my fingers crossed for a job transfer) then I may need some help in setting up some awesome brakes on my Jeep.

They are prototypes for Van at Vanco. He will be selling them at some point.

The nice thing is, if you currently run his 16" kit, you just unbolt the brackets, calipers, and rotors and bolt on the new stuff.
