Make sure your Jeep is ready to stop the moment you need it to with new and upgraded Jeep drum brakes. Although they are considered by most to be an antiquated technology, some Jeep owners prefer drum brakes to the more popular and modern disc brakes
. One reason is the cost. Installing a disc brake on each wheel hub can be expensive. Not to mention the fact that a drum brake can also double as a parking brake. When it comes to lifespan, drum brakes are not as durable as disc brakes and may not last as long, but they are easier and less expensive to fix. If you still have a pair of drum brakes on your rear wheels, it is important to keep a few common replacement parts on hand, such as rear brake shoe sets and internal drum components. Until 2007, the Jeep was equipped with rear drum brakes. Better for larger vehicles, drum brakes work very well on a 4WD application, and Extreme Terrain has everything you need to service them and keep your rig functioning properly!
