The brake system on the 2000 Dodge Ram 1500 includes the brake pads, brake rotors and the brake calipers. Each of these brake components work together so that the Dodge Ram can come to a safe and secure stop. The brake caliper is the brake component that presses the inner and outer brake pads against the sides of the rotors. When the brake pads have been fully pressed to the sides of the moving rotors, the friction of the brake pads against the brake rotors is what stops the truck.
