Re: CJ disk brake swap -big brakes vs little

I can think of only two advantages that small brakes have over big brakes:

1. They're cheaper
2. They're lighter.

On the other hand, big brakes:

1. Require lower hydraulic pressure.
2. Wear more slowly.
3. Will stop a heavier load.
4. Will stop from a higher speed.
5. Will work effectively with a larger tire.

What did I miss?
