    I just purchased a 2014 Gen 1 SVT Raptor. 52k miles. I want to replace the brakes. What's your recommended brake pads, rotors, calipers etc.??

    Highly recommend doing these!!!
    I don't think you need new calipers.

    Rotors and Pads

    Stainless Steel brake Lines to get rid of the spongy feel

    Now if your looking for upgrading the brakes they have the kits to fit your 17" rims.

    I purchased and installed the “EBC” slotted and dimpled rotors and the “greenstuff” pads and I’m totally satisfied. Noticeable improvement over stock. Mind you I’m not doing any hardcore off-roading or trailer hauling as yet.
    One tip: if you’re doing the rears, make sure you lubricate the emergency brake actuator linkages well. Mine were totally seized up and had to bead blast them to clean them up before re-installing.
    I ordered the EBC online from their website. Great service. Make sure you specify Raptor when ordering.

    R1 Concepts for pads and rotors.

    Over a $1000.00 bucks for brake parts? Not sure when the drilled and slotted craze got going but seems like it is really overblown. I would think if you needed these cooled brake rotors maybe I can sell you a new special "Throttle accelerator" I think P.T. Barnum was right " There's a sucker born every minute"

    Drilled rotors are not a great idea for a DD, are prone to cracking and this is worse if you live somewhere with standing water. Slotted isn't great either. The slots are designed to shear off the gas layer and a tiny amount of brake pad every time you use them, They can hold dust against the pad, and absolutely will reduce your pad life. These are race car parts, not street with occasional dirt trek parts.

    Solid rotors are perfectly adequate for 99.9% of on road driving, probably good enough for most raptor users in the off road environment.

    I can also confirm this to be an excellent choice.
