1999 Cherokee rear brake shoes

Can anyone tell me what the original drum brake type is on a 1999 Cherokee? Ceramic or metallic? Any advantage to either one?

The original brake material was probably organic. Use the Google, brake material discussions, and technical articles are easy to find.

According to the National Shooting Sports Foundation, AR-15 sporting rifles account for nearly 20% of all U.S. firearms sales.

Rears don't take as much abuse as the fronts. I usually run the second from the cheapest shoes. All will have a "lifetime warranty" anyways and will probably outlive the Jeep.

If you are looking for more stopping power, then a Disc Brake conversion would be best. Google for XJ Disc(k) Brake Conversion. It's been done many many times.

Get the $35 shoes and enjoy. There is usually a $10 "core charge" on the old ones. Don't let your wife throw them away the next day when you are at work. lol
