Brakin'

suggestions for brakes guys? A friend is recommending raybestos brand but he drives a maxima and uses them for performance speed and 100-0, fast. I on the other hand don't plan on doing in excess of 70 in the MJ. But I will want to rock crawl. What's a good brand to stop vertically? What do you guys ride on?

ps. I would otherwise leave well enough alone, but my old brakes are in a horrible state. I doubt I'd be able to ride on them without severe risk of injury to me and my vehicle, so I'm looking for a whole new brake system.

Just get some wearever or bendix brakes. Affordable and brakes are brakes. Your local parts store should have these brands. They are affordable and do the job. Get new rotors too and bleed your breaks when done and you should have the best brake system not for an arm and a leg. Hope i helped. good luck!

I've always had good luck with the Albany brakes they sell at Autozone. Thats what I put on the back of my Comanche when I did the rear shoes. They are pretty cheap too. The shoes were only like $12.99 and they're lifetime.

Easy to be a truck. Hard to be a Jeep.
