Changed front pads and rotors! I was surprised how easy it was! Definitely the easiest vehicle I have ever worked on.

bought the kit under the 05-06 WK section that ended in part number 829 (828 is the 2wd kit). I got free shipping and also ordered a set of front and rear wheel spacers ($200 + tax and free shipping too). Grand total was $1,716 so right at $1500 for the SL. It seemed like a good buy to me. Now I've also bought wheels and don't need the spacers but they look cool

This has been in the works for months now (supposedly). I was originally very excited until I heard he wasn't making the gears for the OEM diff. Unless he has changed his mind he plans to make a steel replacement diff (like what he makes for the Libby) and produce gears for it ($$$!!!). Seeing as though I run 35s I would love a set of 4.56 gears. However I was also told the ELSD will not work in this new diff which means I would then need to spend even more money on an ARB locker in order to maintain my current off road capability. That is unless I want to down grade my system to the front lockerless 2011+ Grand Cherokee capability! :haha: So I would guess the grand total would be around $2500-3000 installed

Based on his fb post, it sounds like he's making gears for our diffs, not new diffs...I'm not interested either way after how well my wk performed at rausch, I was just throwing it out there for those who may be interested

Did you guys go with some aftermarket brakes or just new stock brakes? I will need to change the brakes on the wk sometime in the not so distant future.

And yeah, brakes a so easy to change. I hate when people tell me the went and got them done at the mechanic and it cost them like $500. It really is a simple job. And I agree, the Jeep is soo easy to work on. Its really a great vehicle.

Thanks man. Ya know since JF doesn't have location services you have put where you are

Also. My jeep kinda kicked my *** this morning. Was driving about 45-47 that area and it decides to kick into first gear. luckily I drive with my hand on the shifter so when it did hit me forward my hand hit it into neutral. Speed sensor is in order just waiting for it to come in. Kinda wish I didn't sell my car now.

Funny thing. I believe I have a coupon for a free repair under $150 somewhere but I also believe my mom threw it away while going on a cleaning craze. Oh well. 1-6 days from now it will be fixed. If I can get the wheel off that is. I have bad luck with lug nuts.

Did front and rear diff fluid change. Hand pump to refill diffs is a must have!
