I only did the pads. Do you need to do rotors every time you change the pads? Didnt used to. I'm not an expert or anything and i didnt put any calipers or anything on them but they looked and felt fine........
As far as impressions, I'm not really good at those but i think i can do an ok Rodney Dangerfield. 🤣
Funny :) I am not an expert on brakes either so I am just wondering if replacing just the pads and not the rotors is worth it and if the better pads offer any additional stopping power. If anyone who knows can chime in that would be great.

Mine got a bath this morning too. Forecast said 10% rain chance so put my top down with plans for a drive. Had breakfast with my mom today. Come out of restaurant to a down pour. Not the 1st time nor last I’m sure but totally unexpected. Crazy Midwest weather….smh

Understandable. Mine was going to get the wash and wax treatment today. Then the downpour. Now it's cloudy and windy. So instead I installed the teraflex brake line brackets in prep for new extended lines

Brakes are very important and rotors are relatively cheap. So I replace everytime. Not to mention I live in the midwest so they rust. Have tried just pads in the past and had issues with noise, loss of braking power etc. I'm the first to give someone a hard time for replacing things that don't need to be...but I replace everytime.

Finished off my molle panels with some gear bags, threw the bigger stuff in the "boxed" area (inside the panels) and added some bungie from the hardtop bolt tie-downs to the panels. Everything's nice and secure. This might be my new favorite mod (and not just 'cus it's the latest one), so much more storage space now!

New Powerstop rotors and Z36 pads on all four corners. Replaced brake fluid too as it’s been 6 years and 32k miles. I think some air worked it’s way in there. Rear pads were shot but fronts were still in good shape. Nice and quick stopping now with larger tires.

@D Robs are those the MT baja mtz p3?
Baja Boss MT's.


The same size Yokohama Geolandar G003 MT's I have on my 4Runner don't pick up rocks like the Mickey Thompsons do.
The Mickey Thomsons are just as bad (for throwing rocks) as the BFG AT KO2's they replaced. Kind of annoying for a Mud Terrain.

I drove my JKU to the Rural King in Angola, Indiana today to purchase a drawbar for the receiver hitch. They had some nice looking heavy ones but closer inspection revealed they were ChiCom so I left without buying any.

Finally got some time to just get out for a quick ride in the Jeep, since going crawling a couple weeks ago.
While out this evening I noticed that my steering wheel no longer indexed as it was. Also noticed that I have a very noticeable pull to the right if I let go of the wheel.
