    Ordered a Marks 4WD hydrobooster kit yesterday.
    Earlier in the year I did the DBA slotted rotors, new master cylinder (same as 4.8) and all stainless braided lines to go with the ECB Yellowstuff pads I already had but I was a bit underwhelmed by the result.
    I didn't want to go the bigger rotors/calipers route with bigger rims, etc

    Am amazed that you were a bit underwhelmed with the EBC pads! Did you follow their bedding in instructions to the letter? Maybe the DBA rotors are somehow less effective than the RDA Slotted & Dimpled rotors that I have with them - can't see why that should be though??? What is the hydrobooster kit?

    It's this kit using a hydraulic brake booster sourced from AC Delco in the US.
    https://www.marks4wd.com/mfk20130.html

    I just fitted this to my TD42 on the 13th March along with the braided brake lines.

    I'm taking the car away for a trip this weekend, so I'll have a chance to drive it for an extended period with it loaded up.
    First impressions after fitting it and it is noticibly different. That's with my standard rotors/pads (not sure of brand, came with the car).

    The EBC pads were an improvement on the Bendix stuff but, with my GVM upgrade, I run permanently around the 3.2t and I just don't find the braking adequate without more than average pedal pressure applied. My 76 year old legs want the Patrol to brake like our Kia Sorento

    The "overseas manufactured" RDA are cheaper rotors than the DBA and the dimples actually do nothing in our Patrol typical usage.

    Yes I wouldn't say that ours (GVM upgrade 3.9t & drum brake rear - so RDA/EBC only on the front) brakes like a modern lightweight car, but the difference between this set up (including stock brake hoses) & the OEM set up is chalk & cheese. It changed the car from unsafe to safe. I don't have to use huge pressure on the pedal, but certainly more than was required in my wife's little Mitsubishi mirage which only needed a very light touch on the pedal. I did think that I might want to fit braided lines, but to be honest I think it's 'good enough'. We travel at around 5 tonnes with the Tvan hooked up & changed from Greenstuff to Yellowstuff pads only because they tolerate greater heat on long downhills without fading. Stopping performance seems about on par with the Greenstuff pads.

    I will be interested to hear your evaluation of your new setup.

    I’m running the RDA/EBC all round with Yellowstuff pads, I rate the combination highly. Followed the bedding in instructions to the letter (as recommended by Cuppa). Had a good workout before Xmas when I descended the Adelaide Hills, with the fully loaded van and car being close to maxed out. Had to jump out of the heavy vehicle lane several times due to 10kph being just to slow, then had to use the brakes several times.
    Got to the traffic lights at the bottom with trepidation (after reading all the official and unofficial warnings), not a problem. Stopped flawlessly with no shudder or fade.
    Cheers

    When towing we got stung with that Adelaide hill at the bottom, with a long traffic jam. Our set of new, but bedded in Falcon front discs warped because of the uneven heat sinking. Bugga!
    My advice is: not to follow my advice.
