Chevy 1/2 ton calipers- $40/ea or wilwood D52 twin pistons- $170/ea
Dodge rotors for 5 or 8 lug- $50 or $75 Havent looked into 6 lug yet but the 5 lug is 13.25" and the 8 lug is 13.89"... perfect for 17" wheels.
Wilwood D52 BP-10 or BP-20 pads- $55/pr.

So about $500 for all 4 and you just need to buy or make some brackets.... You just need some quick alterations to some of the existing brackets out there and it's pretty easy to get them all set up.

Liv2mx, your prices are a little bit on the low side... To get setup with standard 1/2 or 3/4 ton stuff you'll be $300 easily....

And everyone needs to invest in GOOD brake pads.... I cant stress how much of a difference they make. Think of it as driving your car for the first time after letting a little surface rust build up on the rotors, the first time you hit the brakes they bite HARD, that's what good pads feel like all the time.
