Do these work with stock 14'so? I know earlier you said they wouldn't but hopefully you would be referring to other non stock wheels

The Frontier brakes require 15-inch wheels.

My Hardbody is the Heavy Duty version. It came with the dual pistons and 14-inch wheels, so you should be fine.

its not that big of an upgrade...i personally feel that the stock calipers will lock up the tires just fine. Increasing barking force with no change in traction does 0 other than make it lock up tires with less pedal stroke/effort.

Never had the single piston brake calipers, so I cannot speak from experience.

But, the V6 calipers and rotors on the 4cyl truck will work fine with the 14" wheels.

I thought it was a nice upgrade personally. Going from a 1 piston to 2 piston caliper certainly made a difference. The brake rotor size increase, however, is barely anything to brag about.

And yes, v6 calipers and rotors, as well as brake lines. Should be good. I thought they had to be a v6 2wd truck rotor and not a 4wd rotor also, but I could be wrong there. Mine were slotted/cross drilled and for a 2wd v6 truck.

It's a good upgrade. From racing and daily driving experience the dual pistons are worth it.

I'll add to this. I think it's been said already.

I just finished upgraded my brakes a few weeks ago. I bought all new V6 rotor, cailpers, brackets, brakrlines and pads.

The V6 brake lines did not want to work right for some reason. I had to grind some off on one of the edges so they would seat properly. I had them on the right sides. Not a very big deal cuz I had a grinder, thanks to a friend. Just something to keep in mind before you start.

Did you happen to get any pictures of why it needed grinding and where you did the grinding?

That would have been Internet gold, for this thread.

Nope can't upload anyway. But when everything is pulled off and you're looking at the dust shields it's the upper and lower parts that point to the back.
