Brake upgrades?

Wondering what if anything can be done to improve braking on my 2005 WK Hemi. It stops alright, but sometimes not as quickly as i really need, and i have to end up slamming on them hard enough to throw things in the floorboard. Anything I can upgrade for not too much moneys?

Upgraded pads and rotors unless you do the full monty of retrofitting $RT brake$ from the same generation. That would also require different rims and ,if you want the same sidewall height on your tires, a lift kit. Welcome to the addiction

I just messaged kolak (member on here) who supplied new a set (4) of stillen pads and rotors and have been satisfied with them. You are only working with two pistons up front and one big piston in the rear, so don't expect anything to give you sports car braking, but the stillens were a huge step up from OEM IMO.
