upgrading laredo v6/base brake system
 
I've seen a few threads on upgrading brakes, mostly to Brembo or similar high end options. I have a V6 Laredo without vented rear rotors and I believe smaller calipers to allow the 17" wheels? I am looking for some options on upgrading the braking system, has anybody tried to retrofit the V8 brake setup onto the V6? Don't need a Brembo but would like a beefier setup for towing my boat. I have the 18" wheels now so I should be able to fit the Hemi setup?

Thanks,

they would be direct bolt on. You would need the calip[ers and rotors. ll brake lines are the same from laredo to SRT
