About to change my front and rear brake pads from the Stillens to the Wagner Thermoquiets. The Stillens are junk on my opinion, they're all gone at just 20,000 miles. Don't waste your money!

You must be babying the hell out of your WK!!! And not have the Hemi like I do lol How in the hell did you get 100,000 miles out of brake pads? I've never heard of that before. Don't get me wrong they stopped great but wore out waaaay too quick for me. I'm still using the Stillen drilled rotors though.

Ha, not really, but having a diesel (engine compression) & lots of highway miles help.

I installed mine in the XK last week. The switches are a snug fit. I bought mine from OTRATTW.

The diff cover wouldn't fit the limited anyway if its a v8

Tried out my 7.5" drop hitch today headed to practice. It's a LOT better than the 4" that I had, could still use another inch or so to be perfect!

Also played around with my GoPro on my trailer to get a shot of the wk doing work!
