No, that's all im giving you. Seems like i hurt your feelings and you're getting personal. I don't want to be banned for hurting you any more, i came close once. My baby Jeep is mine and is the way i like it. I don't need a big Jeep to feel bigger...

Anybody can take advice if it doesn't interfere with their plan.

No, you will. As soon as we figure out the problem, they will be as great as they were when you first had them installed.

Jeepinsolider.... Thanx for your service. Blaine has been involved with the brakes on my trucks for 10 years now. I have a Vanco kit and hydro booster with BM pads on my Wrangler as well as a Centric rotor and BM pad kit on my daily driver Grand Cherokee. None that product would be on any of my trucks if it didn't work. My advice is to work your problem through with Blaine and you will get taken care of. Blaine knows Jeeps and especially brakes for Jeeps which is why the product is out there.

Blaine is the leading expert in brakes for this application. Why you wouldn't have the utmost confidence that he can address any perceived shortcomings is beyond me.

OlllllllO

None of that matters for many reasons least of which is I can't fix or do anything unless I know about it and there's ways to know about it and ways to "know" about it. What I don't understand is it takes longer to type out a post on the 'net than it does to call me and anyone that has called knows I take calls from 6:30 am to 9pm CA time.

At this point I'm not doing anything until I hear back from Mike.

Slackjaw.... No comment directed at you. What I was reposting was Blaine's commitment to offering the best brake product out there which some people either forgot or simply did not have the reading skills to comprehend.
obliged

If the Unlimited04 and the JeepinSoldier meet up, I'm sure Unlimited will convince/confirm that Blaine is just a nice, albeit hairy, teddy bear in real life.

I don't mind a bit of good to not so good natured ribbing and bantering especially over a person's attributes that they have no control over, but unless you know something about his nether regions I've never seen fit to delve into, shorty is not how I would describe him. He's at least as tall as I am. Now, on the other hand if you are privy to that info, just put me in the pepper and tweezers category and leave me out of it.

If you guys are talking about height and not somethig else, I dont remember Robert being short. I also remember you being taller than I expected

I hate to break into this brake conversation about ***** sizes, but I have a question for the BM brake pad experts. What would be a reason one could not break in the brake pads by riding the brakes, as opposed to the 5 x 2 rolling stops? Reason I ask is those of us stuck in more urban (and trafficked) areas have some trouble with the start/stops without getting up at sunrise and going far far away.....

A guess but it may be to avoid the pad material from accumulating on the rotor?

you should be able to find an industrial//business/office park somewhere with a street long enough and no traffic after working hours.
