Harris4627 Well, problem solved. Thanks for the help guys! Changed my brakes, and went to get new wheels put on last night. When they took the tires off they rotated them for me as well, and between the new brakes and the tire rotation, we're back to normal! Definitely appreciate all the help and input!

Sounds like some crud got stuck in the caliper and damaged the disc, the vibrations could be the damaged disc/pads reverberating.
Brakes are one part of my vehicles I don't mind being over cautious about, if in doubt swap em out! They're cheap enough!
Right on man, that's kinda what I was thinking. I figure while I'm at it, I'll go ahead and but the slotted rotors and good pads on there. And I never though about removing the dust shield... That's not a bad idea.

Thanks!

sevenservices mud/rocks trapped in the brakes maybe??? Everytime I go out wheeling it takes quite awhile to get it cleaned. I even went as far as removing my dust shields off the back of the brakes because they kept trapping rocks in my brakes. Much easier to clean, just not as much protection for the rotors. In my opinion, I'd rather have a rock hit my rotor then to have a rock get trapped between the shield and my rotor and cause it to groove.

Take out your pads and check for even wear. My Land Rover Discovery was a bugger for it, and you wouldn't notice until breaking from over 30mph. That and I wore the pads right down to steel....
I'd definitely check the brakes for issues.
X2 I would start here also. Def sounds like a warped rotor.

OhSixTJ Ummmmm regular tire noise!

Harris4627 Its almost sounds as if my tires are out of balance, but they aren't. And lately it has seemed that my tires have gotten louder on the highway. I'm running 35" bfg km2's.

Weird Loud Noises???

SO I'M HAVING SOME ISSUES, AND I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHERE TO START... ANYTHING OVER ABOUT 25 MPH, WHENEVER I HIT MY BRAKES, IT SOUNDS LIKE MY TIRES MAKE A REALLY WEIRD SOUND AND VIBRATION... IT DOESN'T HAPPEN ON ACCELERATION, OR DECELERATION, JUST WHEN I HIT MY BRAKES AT SPEEDS OVER ABOUT 25. I'M STUMPED. ANY IDEAS?
