Depends on the driving you do. The mouse motor isn't going to get you going to fast and from an experience or two, the stock brakes seem to haul the 4300lbs beast to rest fairly well. I think you'd have to spend a fair amount of money to get a noticeable improvement. I replaced the rear rotors at 95k, the pads two times in a 105k. The front rotors are still stock and appear to be holding up well and have replaced the pads once in 95k. Personally, I'd stay stock and save the money. I'm sure other will chime in.
I have 33's so not a huge jump. Right now everything is stock on the brakes and I really have no complaints. I just really wanted to see what others thought and what their experiences have been. I do some trails but mostly it's my DD.
you'd be fine replacing it with stock components. I have the TeraFlex big brake kit. (just the rotor and caliper bracket) and there is a noticeable difference. if you're looking for increased stopping power that's a nice way to go.
another option I'll throw out there because of how much I've seen it is to get a set of black magic break pads and centric rotors (I only list centric because they are on bmbp's site, I think any quality rotor will do). Not quite as pricey as stepping up to the big break kit, but still an improvement over stock.
first I've heard of it... thinking though, it does make a bit of sense. built up debris in the rotor and around the wheel can lead to all sorts of issues stopping and with performance when you're driving off the trail back home.
as a good practice I try to power wash my rig on the way home if the trail was real muddy. I would think if you did the same the rotors wouldn't be a major concern.. but it's worth consideration when buying...
I'm looking for some informed pro/con or comparison between the Enforcer and the Game Changer. Following some of the build threads on here and from other reviews, the Metalcloak Game Changer really sounds like one of the top 3"- 4" lift kits around. I don't recall it ever getting negative...
I'm running Pro Comp Xtreme 35s on my stock Willy's wheels.
I also have spidertrax 1.75" spacers installed. I still have a point at full turn where my wheels hit my Metalcloak front control arms.
Do I need different wheels to stop this? Bigger spacers?

I've gone through a few of the threads talking about installing winches on the Hardrock bumper, but none have addressed this issue. The instructions say to bolt the centering plate through the bumper and mounting plate, but there is a 1/4in gap left when bolting the bumper on. In addition...
I have a Metalcloak 2.5" dual rate lift kit with rocksport shocks and core4x4 rear upper control arms (and front lower). This is on a '18 2dr JK

Hope all are staying safe and getting ready for the summer with the tops down (hopefully)
I purchased some aftermarket foglights (I know but I couldn't help it), and went to install but the wire harness does not fit the stock fog light harness with the Jeep.
Anyone know what time...
