new brake pads

Getting ready to replace the front pads on my 2002 X and was just wondering if anyone had any recommendations on the new pads. I was just gonna get the Mopar ones unless I get feedback telling me otherwise. Just wondering what to expect to pay for the Mopar pads too. About how many miles is everyone else getting on their pads? I have 47,000 on my TJ and starting to get some squealing fairly often. Haven't taken off wheels and actually checked the pads yet but I'm pretty sure they need to be replaced. Gonna check tomorrow. Thanks.

I paid around $40 for Mopar pads at the local dealer a while ago. They may charge more now. I have since bought some aftermarket at Quadratec.com that are just as good but cheaper. Check your rotors too, at 47K, they should be ok.

Yeah, those pads don't owe you anything. 47,000 is good service for brake friction.

i'm not a fan of getting mopar stuff. imo, it is over priced for what it is. i usually go with napa, autozone, or advanced auto parts. my tj has 75k on the clock and i have only replaced the pads once. the napa gold's have been on there for a while and still have lots of life left.

Kind of an old thread bud

Next time I change my pads I will be going with the Black Magic Pads though.

I know this is older but, the Black Magic Pads are very good. A little pricey, but worth it in my opinion.
