    I ended up going with the crown front big brake kit. Huge increase in stopping power. From what I've read when one goes the other is not far behind. $440 and imo a lot safer than stock. But yes replacing with oem would work.

    What's the simplest way to check for a bum caliper? My Jeep is also on stock suspension, but has a pull despite rotating tires, and getting an alignment. I'm still under warranty, so I'd like a very clear way to show the service writer it's the problem. I don't want to deal with "that's normal" or "unable to replicate problem"

    Sorry for the late reply. Whichever way it's pulling, after a drive you will notice that wheel is extremely hot compared to the others, burn your fingers to the touch. Also if you jack it up and take the wheel off, spin the brake by hand. You should be able to tell if the caliper is locked from that

    That’s a good excuse to get one of those digital pointing thermometers

    Fingers are great for testing for heat, moisture, and smells.

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.
