So I ordered this kit at the dealer P5160051. But they failed to tell me I would need a different master cylinder than what came with the kit since I have a manual transmission. So I was wondering if anyone has done the swap on a manual, and if you found another master cylinder with a slave for the clutch. Or if you just found a kit for a remote reservoir for the clutch. The kit instructions say another part will need to be ordered, but no part number is listed. I called mopar and they recommended contacting jegs for a solution since they don't have one.

Dont get ticked, not many people have that kit yet so very few know the answer.

But... you do now, so what was the solution to the problem? I also have a manual and was looking into the big brake kit.

I thought these kits were on a recall due to a wrong component being included in the original kits?

Hey, I'm not ticked. All that's needed is a remote reservoir for the clutch fluid. Dealer was no help at all. Mopar performance said all I needed was a 4 oz or more reservoir. I ordered this kit by wilwood. WIL-260-11098

I assume this means the kits have been reworked and are back in stock.

Can you do something for us? Take pictures of the part numbers on each box that came with the Mopar kit and post them. We need the part numbers for the rotors, calipers, caliper adapters, pads, brake lines and the bolt package.

That would really help the forum members on top of what you're doing to install on a Jeep with a manual transmission.

Since early shipments of this kit had the wrong size rotors, can you measure the rotors in your kit to see if they are indeed the correct size? My local dealer said the kits are still unavailable..

Sorry, was on vacation. I will open it up and get some pics tomorrow. Also picked up the new 4" mopar lift kit. I haven't opened the crate yet though. I may try to do the install Sunday depending on the weather and if the rotors are the right size.

No worries TJ.. I hope you had fun during your PTO. I'm just looking to connect the Jeep part number dots to existing items. Jeep basically blew me off saying this is proprietary information - but I know better. They also dodged my warranty inquiry using the standard dissertation.

There's only one item I can see in the kit that's unique and that's the caliper adapters. But everything should be available as individual components already in stock - perhaps with exception to the bolt kit. That may not be available as a stand alone item.

Thanks

If you would, please scan the lift kit and brake instructions. I would love to see them before I order them. Good luck on your install.

Guess I'm waiting now too. 12 inch rotors were in my kit also.

So disappointing they don't put the correct rotors in as described in the kit. Are you keeping the kit and installing it still or returning to get the correct rotors?

Not sure what the dealer is doing yet. Supposed to find out tomorrow. Hopefully they just get me the correct rotors.
