Rare LR big brake kit!

Got big tires and cant stop?
Here is an unusual but amazing front brake upgrade for the D90
These are rotors and calipers for the 110 Armored personnel carrier.

Look at the rotor and caliper differences!

Rotors are BRAND NEW, also been cryo treated to last. Come with brake pads.

From LR (only source for them) they list at over $750 each rotor!
Calipers list for $300 each
Pads are $75
Cryo treatment $50

So to duplicate this would cost over $2200! (plus tax and shipping, if you can even get them)

Jamie A and Mike S have both used these rotors on their truck builds.

Asking $1200 net obo.

Not sure why I am drawn to this... Is it just a bolt in application or would I have to revamp my whole braking system?

Jamie didnt change anything to run it. Mike S ran hydroboost, so I dont know what else he had to change.

I just spoke to LR Tampa asking about the calipers, and was told they were last listed for $500+/each and are currently NLA.

So I would assume that makes them even more rare.

A few years ago I provided the info for these to Bush Gardens as their "Rhino Rally" trucks kept killing calipers every few months. They switched to these and love them. No issues since.
So if it can stop a 20+ passenger truck.....

Follow-up Post:

I may ebay them tomorrow at a much higher price of course, so let me know if youre thinking about it

I am interested... But, if they are no longer available, how long do you think that they would last? How long before I would have to replace the calipers?

Rarely if ever. If Busch Gardens can run them on their Rhino Rally trucks all day every day with 15-20 people on board.... and after 3 years never had a failure, a D90 is pretty safe.

They were designed for an armored personnel carrier.
Id bet you could rebuild them should they ever fail. Have your stock ones ever failed?

Let me know!
thanks

If the rotors were not the price of the whole kit, I would have bought them from you, but paying $1500 when I need new rotors does not sound like fun.

You have to remember, these are 4x the thickness of your standard rotor, AND I had them cryo treated so they will last.
Did the cryo to my sports cars rotors and never cracked nor wore them out in 100k miles.

Like I mentioned. They have been used on Rhino Rally trucks w/o needing replacing after daily continual hard use, what strain could your D90 put on them that compares?
I would think a week on the BG trucks would be like years on a normal truck.

I've still got these on my 110 (transferred them from my old 90), immense brakes!!

"normal" stopping power is no better, it's just that brake fade simply doesn't happen.

You do see the rotors around sometimes, i managed to pick up a spare pair a while back, but they are still available from Land Rover (RH rotor FTC1914, LH FTC1915)

Certainly worth the swap if you run bigger tyres or like driving heavily loaded. Uses standard 110 pads, and standard pistons (so the calipers can easilt be rebuilt if needed)

The diameter isnt any larger, they are thicker with massive cooling holes.
On "some" trucks, you may have to shave the hub slightly.
I dont think Jamie had to, mine cleared, but I think Mike S did have to. His was some 137 build or something, so Im not sure where the axles came from.

Want the measurements?

I had to shave the hub on mine slightly (only because i never used the pre-shaved hubs that the brakes originally came on)

Literally just running an angle grinder around the hub on the web between the wheel studs is all you need to do.


Not 100% sure if 15" wheels will fit though as the calipers are quite wide and protrude "into" the rim quite a lot.
