new lift, new tires. bad braking?

Put a 3in. Zone lift and 33x12.5 bfg all terrain. I took it up to my alignment
guy today, and as I was comming up on his driveway going about 60 mph
Holey s#@t was it hard to get the jeep whoaed up to make the turn into his driveway
Anyone have the same issues when putting 33 on?
I'm thinking an upgrade in brakes are in the near future.
what would you guys recommend for upgrades on breakes.
it's an 06 sport with disks all the way around

Totally normal for larger tires. The Vanco big brake kit is popular, so are better brake pads from Black Magic.

The black magic pads and centric rotors are a much
more affordable option for me right now that's for sure.
I saw some of the prices for the vanco upgrade.
Little bit of sticker shock on that one

The Black Magic pads and centric rotors made a huge improvement on my Rubi.
