Camarillo, Calif. — The Ram 1500 truck has impressive power and massive hauling capabilities, and now Wilwood Engineering offers large-capacity brakes to match. Rigid six piston TX6R Tactical Xtreme calipers and 16-inch rotors provide an added margin of safety and increased confidence and control for towing, hauling, high speeds, des­ert pre-running, and mountain driving.

The high friction 16-inch diameter GT60 curved vane rotors are Spec37 iron, an alloy developed for military use, and an inch larger than stock for increased brake torque and thermal capacity.

Forged aluminum TX6R Tactical Xtreme calipers with reinforced end bridges for rigidity, paired with fade-free SmartPadBP-20 compound brake pads, deliver tremendous clamping forces to positively and consistently stop trucks and heavy loads.

Engineered to work with the factory master cylinder and ABS computer system.
