Changed out the original brake pads with new ceramics today. The original set served me well and lasted right around 50k miles. I plan to swap out the rotors as well when I need another set of pads. So far the stock setup has done the job just fine for me with the 2 door on 35s.
Next upgrades are undoubtedly the shocks and a Warn winch.
Been super slammed at work recently and haven't been out and about in the Jeep much (apart from to and from work every day because it's my daily driver lol) but the shocks are supposed to arrive next week, then the winch shortly after!
I do have a trip to Borrego planned this month and then A2Z in early December!
Stoked to report that the Jeep currently has zero issues! (Knocking on wood...)
Rancho Shocks and Stabilizer, super happy with the outcome. Still in the process of breaking them in but so far they feel close to stock but with improved dampening (slightly softer) and of course more travel as I was running the stocks on extensions for quite some time before... Lol
Went with these as I didn't feel the need to break the bank on shocks just yet as I'm sure I'll bump up to a full blown coilover setup in the years to come, and I love how these are made in the USA as well! GoRancho!
Got an update on the winch and it's supposed to be here this upcoming Wednesday the 23rd! Things have been really moving along and coming together for my JK a lot more recently. Stoked to add the finishing touch to the front end. (For now at least )
