I'll go with some regular ones I just need to figure out what to go with.


Training is going great I'm actually working now in the jail which is alot of fun. I'm accelling past all the other recuits and my FTO said that I should be moved to the last training phase! but I'm not bragging or anything...

4.0l sahara With todays modern pads that give off little to no gases slotyed rotors are more for looks and don't do much till high speeds. But if you really want great brake pads buy some HAWK HPS street racing pads they wera very well and have little dust. They also stop awsome compaired to your average pad but are around 80$ for one pair. Just a thought?

AzTJ Drilled and or slotted rotors are for racing applications only. Although the might help in the very slightest times that you have to slam on the brakes, they really are more of a pain in the rear than anything on a vehicle like ours.

richp Yea, I've seen slotted rotors get a rock stuck in them and rout out the pads pretty quick.... Just go with wagner STEEL rotors, not composite.

I also need to know what kind of brakes I need or will work with these rotors.

thanks for the help again guys!
I checked out the rotors.... Assuming your Jeep is in the range for the application, they should work fine. However, the mud may get into the slots if you go off-roading and that would kind of be counter-productive to the design. Slotted rotors could be handy for a DD application.
