"It's a Jeep Thing" Brake Time

Wednesday, June 9, 2010 by Todd Galbreath
As with any modification, there are always going to be changes in the performance of the vehicle.

While the Dick Cepek wheels and BFGoodrich tires look and perform great, the braking system on the Jeep is now a little slow to stop the extra rotating mass.

A simple upgrade on the front brake pads should be enough to bring it back to the stock or better stopping distance. Jeep recommends and equips the Wrangler with ceramic brake pads from the factory so we will stay with ceramic pads and go with either the Hawk Performance Ceramic Brake Pads that offer the best stopping power in our lineup or the Akebono ProACT Ceramic Brake Pads and ATE PremiumOne Brake Pads that have a little less dust for the front.
