What I plan on replacing them with I have not decided. I'm looking at either the BFG KO2s, or the Cooper A/TWs, but there are other possiblities.



I'm not bothered by the brakes though as wear and tear items are going to happen at some point (They'll also come out of my expense fund, which is funded from all the driving I do for work). I'm looking to order new wiper blades, filters, and even diff fluid, so if the brakes need to be done, I'll tack those on when I order parts from mopar.



That being said, Len, would you recommend just getting new OEM pads and rotors, or would you suggest something different? I do recall some folks here talking about some better than OEM pads and rotors, so I'm curious whats your take on it.


I personally have powerstop slotted and cross drilled rotors with there pads. However, if you don't tow or have a very heavy Cherokee like mine I don't recommend them.

Powerstop does make an OEM replacement kit KOE6541. Amazon has it for 221$. But that's if you have the tow package. KOE6539 which costs 238$ if you don't have the tow package.

I've got nearly 10k miles on my powerstop kit and they've been wonderful. Dealer quoted me 1100$ to do a complete brake job.

Yeah, after I made my post, I looked around, and PowerStop came up (also saw your thread on replacing your brakes), and got interested. I do have the tow package, but I don't do a lot of towing, if at all right now. The OEM replacement kit would certainly suffice, and especially at that price. I'll do some more digging, and see what I can find out. Appreciate the advice, Len.
