Thanks. They are Napa Ultra Premium rotors. I will post a review once I have some miles on them. I have used Greenstuff on several cars and have always been pleased, but this is my first time using the 7000 compound and first time on an SUV.

Cool, after looking into them abit more looks like the Greenstuff 7000's are what I need

Dirty, Nice limited. Did you have to trim your front bumper down (along the bottom near fog lights) in order to get the front brush guard to fit? What is the specs on it, as in which WJ version is it built for?

I've been looking all over for one to fit the limited's.

Thanks

Mac

I think I remember him saying before that it was made for a different vehicle and he modded it to fit...but I could be thinking of someone else. As for finding one that fits the limited, all brush guards made for the laredos will fit the limited and overland models. Pretty sure they say it won't due to most of them coming with factory tow hooks. Remove tow hooks and it'll fit, then make new mount for the tow hooks. Worked for me anyway.

This brush guard is not for the WJ and I had to fab some mounts for it to work. The bumper cover was trimmed for when I cut off my radiator support. Hope this helps
