Posted August 1, 2007

The brake system is one of the most overlooked systems on our vehicles. Typically, until we hear the squealing from the pads, or we have ruptured a line while off-roading, we don't put much thought into brakes. This month, however, all of that is going to change! We have assembled some of today's hottest replacement components for your truck's brake system. Everything from fluid to complete systems to replacement lines has been included to hopefully spark your interest. Enjoy.
