2014 Grand Cherokee - Slotted Rotors

Anywhere to purchase slotted rotors for 2014 non-SRT models? I have an Overland and would be interested in some slotted or cross-drilled discs.

Everywhere I look online seems to only be produced for SRTs

Something like these:



Does anyone know if the 2013 rotor dimensions are the same as the 2014? If so than there looks to be plenty of online sources to buy from.

Most slotted or cross drilled rotors are for looks and do not provide any real benefits. Cross drilled rotors are a joke since they crack. They are a cheap copies of a Porsche design. The original Porsche designed rotors where cast not drilled which makes a huge difference in durability. If you want better braking performance better fluid and pad material along with better cooling are the answer. Not holes or slots in our rotors.

They are the same size as last year, however if the HD brakes are still being used on Hemi's are another question. If you have a V6 you should be fine as long as you get the standard size, but if you have a V8 you will need to compare yours to a 2013 to see if they are the same, I would assume so, but who really knows. If you do not have the HD brakes you could upgrade to them as long as you have 18" wheels or 20" wheels, there is a parts list somewhere that shows all of the stuff you need for the swap. I put cross drilled and slotted rotors on my old escort, I didn't really notice too much of a difference other than the noise which I thought was cool. If you are towing they might be useful, or if you are in stop and go traffic you might benefit from them, but in normal everyday driving you won't notice anything.

I installed Stillen rotors and performance pads on my 2010 GC Limited a year ago. Biggest mistake I ever made. I live on the side of a mountain and thought upgraded brakes would help with cooling/fading. They never worked right from day one. I ended up trading in the 2010 for a 2013.

Good advice, these do not belong on a GC. Best bang for buck is pads. I haven't looked closely, are our brake lines braided stainless?
