After reading the below post about the wilwood brake kit, im VERY disappointed. I just lifted my truck on 18" wheels and NOT 20" like I should have. Otherwise I seriously would have ordered the brake kit 10 seconds ago.
I just cant justify reselling my wheels and tires at a loss just to buy another set.
Something to look at to put inside your 18's....I have no idea how good these are, and zero experience with the company or their products, just did a search and they showed up. Maybe worth researching more...
It uses the stock rotor size but switches from the standard piston to a 6 piston. I havent seen my truck yet. i am not sure what a stock truck runs for piston count. I wouldnt be surprised if it was a single piston.

What's important is the centerline of the swept area (diameter), the coefficient of friction of the brake material, and the clamping force (total piston area). With opposing piston calipers, use only half of the pistons (one side for the calculations.
You might be surprised.
