The rears go really quickly. The ESP keeps them dragging a bit. The good part is they are cheap and super easy to change.....

I had to replace my rears at about 10k. I have 42k on it now with the factory front pads and the $18 dollar replaced rears.

2-door, locked, 5.13's, 37's.

ah ha well it's really going to burn through the rear pads cause i have a welded rear did that when she had 1900 miles on her...

yeah i would think the tcs would think the axle is always moving the same speed and not apply the brakes

I've read several threads on various forums that the JK rear pads typically go around 20K. Surprised to see them that worn out at only 10K.

just the esp has been off since i bought it... new brake lines after the lift maybe 100 mile on the lines, had the dealer bleed the brakes because of the abs solenoids.

My rear brakes are worn out after 25k miles. Today I drove down to Rebel Offroad, picked up a set of their brakes, and will have a buddy install them in a few days.

Yup, you can thank the traction control for that. Part of all that useless shit they put on a jeep.

Not sure how your Jeeps are wearing out brakes so quickly. Did they really fix this in 2010? I just checked my 2010's rear brakes at 25k (about 9k with the lift and tires) and they look absolutely fine. Judging by how much is left of the pad, I'd say there's a good 10-15k easy left in them.

i was suprised also that the rears wore out faster than the fronts. this is the first vehicle i've ever seen whis happen to. i checked them a couple of times... honestly, i can't complain, as i got 37,000 miles out of the originals. the fronts are still in great shape, though....

took roughly 10 minutes per side to do. super easy change. best arangement i've seen in a long time.

Had a friend help me change out my brakes today. I went with Rebels set up as I was going to be in their area last Friday anyways. Like B1pig said, the change was quick and easy.

As far as the Rebel brakes, I like them. There is a noticable stopping difference. I even got to try them out tonight. A jerk was serving all over the highway and ended up cutting me off. Brakes saved me some damage. Oh, and I reported his ass, hopefully he got picked up by the sheriffs.
