When a pad sheds more material it also sheds more heat. "Dusty" pads tend to have better cold bite and last longer before fading. There's a reason why German cars produce more dust, it leads to...

Last I checked JKs had a "normally" mounted engine while running electric fans. I'm no advocate of electric fans but that argument has a pretty big hole in it.

Lots of dust doesn't mean low quality pad, in fact I'd argue the exact opposite (assuming we are equating quality to stopping power). Some of the highest quality pads you'll find produce tons of...

4.88 isn't to low for 33s... unless you are driving on the highway everyday at 80+MPH. I've had 4.88 with 33s and the AX-15/4.0L for 3 years now and it's fantastic both on and off road. For the...

You have a 3-link wishbone set up. Wishbone eliminates the track bar and when you broke the wishbone you lost all lateral stability of the axle.

Sounds fine to me.

The cable adjuster under the tub should only be adjusted to remove slack from the cables when the parking brakes aren't engaged.

Remove the tensioner pulley bolt (be careful since it will be under tension), you’ll then be able to pull the block with broken tension bolt out. Will make extraction easier.

Just a point of clarification, I don't know of anyone making new OEM steering gears. Even gears from Mopar are re manufactured. The only new gear I know of is the PSC Big Bore, but that's big $$.

Depends on the state. Either way I would imagine something like this extends beyond lemon laws, this is more than just a "defect", it's a serious safety/liability issue.

How long ago did you buy it? I can't believe a dealer would sell something in that condition, but at the same time did you not inspect the vehicle AT ALL?

Yes rev matching is giving it throttle to bring the engine RPM up to where it needs to be on the downshift. Heel-toe is a way to rev match when you are braking and downshifting at the same time. IMO...

Don't worry, the IAT sensor is there since our Jeeps use MAP sensors and temperature must be known to calculate density.
