|Vendafreddo11||Which one is better and what's the difference between the hawk hps and lts|

|kenb1023||Well I went with the Rabestos slotted rotors in front a Centric sloted rotors in the rear (Raybestos wer back orderd) all have Hawk HPS pads. Big improvement on stoping power. Never realized how small the rear pads were.|

|warbird24||There is a WIDE quality difference in rotors. Many of the chain Parts stores source theirs from China. I'm not sure where Raybestos makes theirs, but I do know they are good quality. I'll probably go with factory one's like I did on my WJ. Better quality and most times the "hat" area has an E-Coating on them to prevent rust.|

|2five22||Hawk pads, yes. Slotted or drilled rotors? I wouldn't bother.|

|outback||I went with the drilled and slotted power stops because I run 37s and my stopping distance was bad. Stopping distance is much shorter now. Never had a problem with mud in slots that I've noticed.|

|wheels082||I don't have a rotor recommendation, but I would highly recommend the Hawk pads.|

|jkjeeper06||Slotted rotors tend to collect mud in jeeps. Although they stop better when clean, they will wear out your pads quicker and can just cause headaches when stuff gets caught in it|

Are you running completely stock?
I went with the Terra Flex big brake kit and master cylinder a little over a year ago. With all the weight adding mods this was, in my opinion, one of the best mods I've done.
I haven't had a chance to put a lot of miles on it so I can't speak to the longevity of the pads but the stopping power is fantastic.
A couple of different options, slotted rotors or standard rotors, neither of which I think is too expensive.

i don't have enough miles to consider them yet
but i wouldn't ever bother with slotted/drilled rotors on a wrangler. i wouldn't even put it on a regular road car. waste of money and you'll never see any worthwhile performance improvement. IMHO.

Front Brake Rotor/Pad Sugestions
Looking to replace the front Brake rotors and pads. Has anyone used the Raybestos Slotted rotors? What other rotors work well with a JKU? For the pads I was thinking Hawk LTS or Akebono ProAct Pads. What has worked best for you in the past.
