The big three are the main objective while the look of the BBK is a plus for more open window wheels.

That's just not how you measure performance. The BBK that I have don't lock up I'm the same way as the factory mushy brakes do, they just stop the truck hard. Over repeat braking the performance remains fairly consistent.

There is a massive difference between Brembo and the factory brakes. I'm sure Dinoone will agree with me here, it's not just for looks I promise :-)

It sounds like you're describing bite, fade, and feel which can be achieved with pads, rotors, and brake lines.

Yeah I am sure the 8 piston setup bites hard. But it does look nice lol

Nobody has measured stopping distance yet but since the stock brakes lock up the tires so quickly there isn't much room for improving the stopping distance was my initial point.

And it's a pretty hefty price tag for jayrod who is looking for a minor visual improvement.

Not all I am looking for, a BBK changes the big as mentioned before so that will ultimately improve braking performance while looking better.

I have confirmed with Wilwood that they have not released their kit for the 17 Raptor and the current kit for F-150's will not fit without modifications. They said 90 days on their new kit.
