You need brakes AND rotors? Is this a new "used" purchase?

Ballandchain Yeah, brakes (pads) are pretty simple. Even if you have to buy a jack and do one side at a time, you will still be saving A LOT of money. Youtube it, study it, and do it.......When your finished, you'll be like "wow, it was that easy?"

MuddyMO 64055 50 -60 bucks buys new pads for front and rear if you get the basic semi metalic... will take you an hr to do all 4. It really is pretty simple.

Couldn't agree more.

Full disclosure: I don't yet own a Jeep, but have done my own brake work for many years, on everything from pick-up trucks, to Corvettes, to motorcycles. Read, study, get a friend to help...just do it!!

Chris M I back what these guys have said. Definitely don't go to the dealership. They are the worst for repairs. If you don't want to do it yourself, try going to a Midas dealership. I get a pretty good hook up on everything because I've been going there so long. I pay cost on parts and only pay about half the labor fees.

Most of the parts receive a 100% mark up in price when received at a dealership. I worked there for quite a few years so and saw it happen everyday.

X3. If you have no money maybe you shouldn't be driving a Jeep...... Just a thought.
