My rear brake pads are down to .002 and the front is at .008. Is that normal. Shouldn't the wear be 60/40 the other way. It's a 2012 sport Wrangler with 34995 miles. Shouldn't this be covered by warranty?

Wrong forum for your jeep..... And brake pads are a wear item-I've never known them to be covered under a warranty.

It depends on the quality of the pads and rotors being used. A lot of times you can get away with only changing the front brakes the first time, and getting to the back at the second change. Not always. Just replace them all if they are worn, it doesn't cost much.

Wear rate depends on how you drive. If you drive 20 mph over the speedlimit and keep hitting the brakes because you are tailgating or weaving in and out of traffic, you are going to need a lot of brake pads. Change your driving habits...

You have 35 thousand miles on your Jeep, Bob. Change your pads.

If I remember correctly from when I was a mechanic at a jeep dealership, brake pads are only covered for 1 year.

Brake Pads

It is a wear item and owner responsibility: On my daily I have 98k and still on original brakes-depends on your foot/driving habits. The brides on the other hand is heavy on the brake-ugh!!
