    I'm fighting the urge to install the kit right now. I'll get to it in the next couple days, I've got other things that must get done first family-wise.

    I only ran into one issue. There was some debris in the first brackets slide pin posts. I cleaned it out with a scratch awl (careful not to gouge the internal sides) and I removed the crud with a cue tip lightly coated in grease.

    The other front bracket didn't have any crud in it.

    I'll post more when I'm done later tonight.

    Just finished the install. No other problems with the kit. Just some squealing from the parking brakes pads (not part of the kit) because I must have tightened them too much or my parking didn't fully release. Either way, I'll look at it tomorrow.

    Here are a few pictures of the aft brakes.

    I'll let everyone know how they are after I bed the pads.

    Thanks! Dynastic did a great job with this kit which made the install so much easier. They included a great set of instructions which made it even easier if you've done a brake job in the past.

    Unfortunately I didn't have time to do any preservation or I would have cleaned up the calipers and apply some black brakes/caliper paint. Just something else to do once I find some time this summer.

    So, how does the jeep stop?

    Missed this. I too want to know how the braking is.

    And damn, I am so glad I live out west, that is a lot of rust.

    Haha, it's funny how relative this is. I was thinking that there's barely any rust there! And I'm only a few hours (ok, maybe 10 or so) up the coast from him.

    It is an expensive mud slogging, sand throwing, snowmobile with a heater, convertable toy that as a bonus happens to provide daily transportation.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
