SRT Brembos on an Overland?

Has anyone done an SRT brembo brake swap onto a Laredo/limited/overland/summit?

Just curious to know...

Re: SRT Brembos on an Overland?

would be very keen on this as coming in from an evo to this, lets just say the brakes is pretty much average.

They are definitely better than the little brakes that a non 4X4 overland has.

First time I had to break going downhill I thought I had a break problem and they call these breaks on the Overland heavy duty? I'm interested to know as well if the srt brembos would fit or if there's some other option we could fit in there? Mines 4x4 they still feel weak

Re: SRT Brembos on an Overland?

been done already! I did this on my 2011 Durango. All that's needed is the Brembo calipers and rotors and SRT wheels or SRT replicas.

You still have your wheels for sale Scott? I'm always driving up and down hills will the brembos make that much of a difference?

I'm sold on the upgrade thanks for the info. Gives me another reason to change out the wheels. 20 inch overland wheels don't have enough space?

Re: SRT Brembos on an Overland?

the brembos make a HUGE difference! Yes...youll need srt wheels or the srt replicas. I know those work for a fact.

Re: SRT Brembos on an Overland?

Has anyone pulled this off?

First post BTW, I have a 2012 Overland in Miami but I'm having to spend some time overseas so I am building a 2014 Laredo V8 Armored Level 4 over here; she will be pulling around 1200# more so I need the stopping power and this would help.
