Brakes and mud

Every time I get back from riding in the slop my brakes love to squeak the next day. I have new brakes all the way around and last time little pebbles got stuck in rear pads. Yesterday I go again and she is squeaking and grinding again. Sounds terrible and will have to pull wheels. Anyone else have this problem?

Yeah that will happen when you play in the mud.Wash the Jeep ASAP afterwards and spend most of your time spraying the undercarriage.

I agree soon as you get back on the road go straight to the car wash and spray the undercarriage out real good while its still wet along with the brakes not much you can do about getting the mud and slop in your brakes while off road that just comes with the territory

I had to pull my rear discs because the parking brake was full of little pebbles and screeching like a bad bearing.

I wonder if there is any kind of aftermarket "scraper" that could be added to the brake system. Like a plastic tab that sits at an angle against the brake rotor and like a window scraper, scrapes mud and pebbles off the rotor as it turns before they can get under the brake pad. Maybe mounted to the pad caliper so that it applies a split second before the pads do so it isn't constantly rubbing?

also a large part of my general dislike of mud.

That's what I would do. I would go straight to pressure washing underside but pebbles kept getting embedded in the pads
