I back what these guys have said. Definitely don't go to the dealership. They are the worst for repairs. If you don't want to do it yourself, try going to a Midas dealership. I get a pretty good hook up on everything because I've been going there so long. I pay cost on parts and only pay about half the labor fees.

5 minutes playing in the mud=5 years of shit falling on your face while you work on it.
No/little money + a little homework online + a few inexpensive tools = new brakes and a proud diy Jeeper with a little grease under his/her nails. Dig in brother, you will surprise yourself!
Couldn't agree more.
Full disclosure: I don't yet own a Jeep, but have done my own brake work for many years, on everything from pick-up trucks, to Corvettes, to motorcycles. Read, study, get a friend to help...just do it!!
Yeah, brakes (pads) are pretty simple. Even if you have to buy a jack and do one side at a time, you will still be saving A LOT of money. Youtube it, study it, and do it.......When your finished, you'll be like "wow, it was that easy?"
