Oh god, that is horrible. Were you or your passengers hurt when it rolled? I hope you can salvage a lot or that it might not be totaled. Did it roll several times or just flop over?

Same here, tires too big. The last time my jeep made the track jump the belt and they were down for 30 minutes. I understand it, but I don't like it.

Well my brother-in-law is a dealer so I got it at wholesale cost. But I believe it would cost around 300-350 maybe?

I did that immediately as well. Those seats are useless unless for kids 8 or younger or maybe small dogs. I just took them out and put down an old comforter and now my Lab has somewhere to drool all over.

I don't have drum. The calipers just came right off. Easy peasy

Rotors were still perfect. No need for turning or anything

I was looking at that same setup but think I'm gong to go with a powertank instead. I don't have lockers yet and just need it to air up.

I was at 34,000 miles. Keep in mind that my friends didn't need it I just changed them anyways to do them all at once. My front brakes were still in fantastic condition my rear brakes needed it very badly.
