Wilwood Engineering has recently introduced a new D154 parking brake rear kit that features the latest in disc brake technology. The D154 Pro Series rear disc conversion kit with integral parking brake provides high-tech styling for the street and rugged durability for the toughest off-road conditions. Experience big brake stopping power from 12.19” diameter rotors and two-piston floating mount calipers for ultimate control with big wheel and tire packages. Application specific engineered kits feature bolt-on installation and full compatibility with the OE master cylinder output.
This kit, part number 140-12567 covers the full range of non-ABS Dana 35 rear axles used over a wide range of Jeep models over a wide range of years. The kit not only provides better performance, but also the advantages of a parking brake for situations where parking brake functionality is needed.
Custom forged billet, two-piston design GM D154 metric style calipers in black or red powder coat provide correct rear bias and improved clamping efficiency with balanced pad loading over OE cast iron single piston calipers. Calipers work in conjunction with large 12.19” diameter ULHP plain face vented rotors providing cool running, long wear, and increased stopping leverage for oversized wheel and tire combinations. Optional SRP drilled and slotted rotors are also available.
Wilwood BP-10 compound “Smart Pads” round out the kit and are a very unique rotor friendly metallic composite that offers low dust and quiet engagement with higher friction, heavier load capacity, and increased fade resistant over regular OE style or ceramic compound pads. Other brake pad compounds, including those for off-road applications, are also available.
DOT approved Stainless steel braided and jacket reinforced flex lines are provided with each kit to connect the calipers to the OE brake lines on the axle.
All of Wilwood’s performance brake kits are loaded with cutting edge technology built on years of domination in world motorsports. These kits will not only exceed your braking demands, delivering uncompromised performance and durability, on and off-road, but also enhance the appearance of your Jeep.
