The Power Stop Z36 Extreme Truck & Tow Brake Kit is for the front of your 2007 to 2018 JK. And this kit is really for anybody who's looking for some additional braking performance without changing the entire braking system on your Jeep. This is going to be upgrading a couple of components that you can do easily and less expensive than going ahead and installing a big brake kit and changing the calipers. But this is still going to give you a little bit more performance. This is going to be a one-out-of-three-wrench installation. Of course, the brakes on your Jeep are already designed to be replaced. They are a wear item. So popping these ones on is going to be very, very easy. Anyone can do this in their driveway, and we'll talk more about the installation in just a second. These are going to be a set of pads that is going to be a little bit grippier and a set of rotors that are, of course, drilled and slotted, all to give you a little bit more performance. Power Stop Brakes makes some really good kits. They put together pieces that are gonna work really well together, and you know that they're going to fit on your vehicle right out of the box. So while this may be a little bit more expensive than some of the other choices out there, it is going to be worth it. So this kit is going to include Power Stop's Z36 extreme-duty break pads. These are going to be a carbon fiber and ceramic composite. They're designed to be quiet, low-dust, and not to fade even when they get some heat in them, which is a situation that you can run into when you have a heavy load when you have a trailer. And I know you're not hauling a lot in your Jeep. However, if you have big wheels and tires on the vehicle, it can end up having the same effect on the brakes as if you had a heavier load. So that's why these are gonna be a benefit to a lot of you guys. Of course, Power Stop does pair those with a set of drilled and slotted rotors. The idea behind the drilled and the slotted is that it allows the gases that are created between the rotor and the pad somewhere to escape to, giving you a greater contact patch and, therefore, more friction, more braking power. Now, some people don't like having the drilled and slotted rotor. When you spend a lot of time off-road, it gives a place for dirt and mud, and rocks, and everything else to sit, which can then just tear up your pads. That's completely up to you. Depending on how you use your Jeep, you may want drilled and slotted, or you may wanna stick with something a little bit more traditional. But there is one thing for sure, a set of drilled and slotted rotors that are paired with these extreme duty pads are going to give you some more braking power and a better braking feel. Now, if you really want to go ahead and upgrade your brakes, a good way to do that is to go with a big brake kit. So there's actually going to be a larger rotor, which is going to allow the caliper to sit a little further away from the center of that rotor, giving greater mechanical advantage, more stopping power. You can also add calipers that have an additional number of pistons in them, again, just giving you more clamping force. But those kits are gonna be more expensive, and they're going to be more involved to install. So if you're looking for a little bit of a bump in performance, but still a very easy install and a fairly low cost, that's where this falls. As for installation, like I mentioned before, the pads and the rotors on your Jeep are a wear item. They're designed from the factory to be replaced. So it is going to be a very, very simple process for you. All you're going to have to do is unbolt the caliper from the caliper bracket. That will allow you to remove the pads. You'll also remove the caliper bracket from the steering knuckle. Then, you'll be able to pull the rotors off of the studs, slide the new rotors in, replace the caliper bracket, put in your new pads, replace your caliper, and you're finished. This kit's gonna run you $180, and that is going to be more expensive than an OEM-style set of replacement pads and rotors. But it's gonna be less expensive than one of those big brake kits. So as I said before, it's priced in the middle and you're also going to get performance that's right in the middle there. It's gonna be better than factory, but not as good as a big brake kit. So if you're looking to increase the stopping power of your JK without completely redoing the entire brake system, which can be very expensive, this is gonna be an excellent option for you. And you can find these right here at extremeterrain.com.
