TTIB 50 Brake Upgrade kit

Hello All!
So I have a 2003 SMB E350 EB that was converted to the Agile O/R Dana 50 setup by the previous owner. While I am happy with the setup overall I find that the brakes just don't cut it. Lets face it, the rig is a pig but it's my pig and I love it My main playground is in the heart of the Colorado Rockies with lots of long steeps so good brakes are a must have. Anyone have any suggestions for better binders?


Thanks!
Patrick

Agile offers a "big brake" upgrade. Do you know if you conversion has it?

Not sure! I will tear into it this week.
I do have a call into them as well. Sometimes easier to go straight to the source!

We too have Agile’s TTB. Recently we had them do the big brake upgrade done and it is very, very nice! I recommend it.

I knew at some point this was likely going to happen and prepared by going w 17” wheels to start with. Worked out well.

I have the big brake kit with 16" wheels. I heard maybe stock wheels wont work but some aftermarket will?

Hydro boost brake upgrade might be an option as well.

I’m considering this easy DIY upgrade on my van.
