When I replaced mine I just used Raybestos. And they have been on there for about 2 yrs now with no problems at all. Also you might want to check your steering stabilizer.. I had vibration in the wheel and it was my problem.

Brembo are regarded as some of the best brake systems in the world.
Tirerack sells them for 195/pair front and 203/pair rear for the high performance rotors, or 37/ea front and 42/ea for OE style replacement rotors.

It's on the steering, oddly enough....

If you go to the front of the Jeep, kneel down before it and pay homage. With your nose to the ground take a peek underneath and near the center. There is a shock absorber looking thingy mounted sideways to some long bars and stuff.
That is the steering stabilizer.
OME and Rancho are the most popular aftermarket ones, though I hear the Rancho has fitment problems.
