It was Stillen front rotors, Performance Friction Carbon Metallic front pads and 2 factory new calipers for it, it was $360 with $170 for shipping to me.
But even with the shipping added to it its still cheaper than it would be if i had bought the parts here in sweden.

Got a new windshield installed today. It's great not looking through a sand blasted windshield. Not only that but there's no more scratch from when my wiper blade decided to break during a downpour. And lastly, maybe this will fix the leak that has plagued my ZJ since I got it over 3 years ago. We'll see.

$162 out the door with a friends and family discount. Otherwise I would have been looking at over $200.

Finally installed my crawler ready motor mounts from my last zj onto the arctic beast. Got all three mounts now in poly form.

Anyone need an extra protane motor mount to do the 96-98 trans mount?
Poly Mount FOR SALE

My valve on the high pressure side has a leak. Asked the shop how much to replace (since I don't have an evap system to drain) said 200-250. Tempted to say f it and just refreon it and call it good for a couple months.

Found a haynes manual, was pumped about that.

I have the stillen rotors front and rear, same pad set up from kolak. Ran me around 400 including shipping. I really like the set up personally. Nice because the rotors are 1 piece cast instead of 2 like the originally did. Stops the tank very well. Tested them out at go topless day and did very well on steep hills

I also found and purchased a Haynes manual today..I love the thing I used to have one I loaned to a fellow (newbie) ZJ owner who left it on his passenger side floor board. Needless to say we all know what happened to it.
