does the 2003 TJ X pkg have 4 wheel disc brakes?

I got my wrangler in early december and haven't had the tires off yet. Does it come with 4 wheel disc brakes? I would just go look but I'm between classes and looking up prices at NAPA and Autozone cause they have been squeekin for awhile now.

No... I have an X and it came with front disks...Perhaps the rear disks are an option? I thought the rubicons have rear disks...

Yeah, all I could find online is that rubicons have rear discs. Thanks for the info! Mine didnt seem to have any extra options ontop of the standard X pkg cept it has full doors, but that might be standard.

Whatdo you replace in drum brake setup and how do you replace it? I've replaced lots of disc brake setups(calipers, brake lines, pads, rotors, ect.), but never drums.

you have drum brakes in the rear. they're pretty easy to work on. get the Haynes manual and it'll give you step by step picture directions.

I would rather have disc brakes.. for better stopping.. You dont need to take your wheels off to find out you have disc brakes// just look through the wheel slots in the front and rear.. rwd trucks normally have larger rotors in the rear

also, brake squeal doesn't mean they're worn out. you'll have to look and see how much material is left on the pads/shoes to find out if they're worn or not.
