Did you break the pads in properly and did you change out the rotors?

Well I may not have done what I should have its only my second brake job. I didn't break the line loose so I didn't have to bleed it so other than that just got up to speed and brakes hard on em. I'm not a mechanic so talk like I'm dumb

No worries, yeah bleeding is a whole other situation.

Bedding the pads is something you always want to do to mate them to the rotor.

This is my general procedure:
After installing new pads make 6-10 stops from approximately 35 mph with moderate pressure. Make an additional 4-8 hard stops from approximately 45 mph. Make an additional 1-5 hard stops from approximately 55 mph. Do not allow the vehicle to come to a complete stop. When completed with this process, park the vehicle and allow the brakes to cool completely before driving on them again. Try to coast down to stopping and minimize braking to stop the vehicle before parking it. Do not engage the parking brake until after this cooling process is compete.

WW, what brand of pads? My EBCs did squeal initially.. after talking with them, they said to expect it during a break in period of up to 1000 miles.. and they were right, it went away well before 1000 miles.

Threw on my new Bestop seat covers and wired up some new Kicker 5 1/4" speakers into the sound bar. Removed my undersized spare tire and holder and gave her a good bath to get some of the road salt off. Have to get my old 31" mounted and figure out how I'm going to carry it.

They were the top pad NAPA offered I really don't remember the brand something gold or of that sort.

If you want that jack to work good and last you a long time, don't leave it on your bumper.
If you want it to look neato, nice mounting spot.

I'm amazed at how good it turned out. It's almost an obsession lol. I'm gonna use it on every chrome piece I've got. If your planning to do your bumper you might wanna look into doing your tube side steps too, I think they would look really good bed lined!

Just noticed your rocker guards/ sliders as well. Been looking at this same style. Did you happen to get these off extreme terrain as well?
