The other day, at 107,000 miles, I heard the indicator on one of the rear brake pads hit the rotor. I wound up replacing the rear pads and rotors. Nothing out of the ordinary until I went to inspect the fronts, they were like new (see pic). I understand the brake bias has changed over the years and the rear brakes are much more engaged, but the rears were toast. I have owned the Jeep since new, drive like I stole it most of the time and tow a utility trailer often. It is a six-speed and that helps, but will I ever have to replace the front pads?

I replaced the original rear pads at 35,000, and again at 64,300. But this last time, I had to buy a new caliper bracket because the original one was too rusted, and the pins were frozen.
(Thanks to Michigan winter road salt and summer oil well brine sprayed as dust-control onto dirt roads).

Never have replaced any rotors nor front brakes.

My rears have been changed probably around 50000. I believe the front is OEM.
however I have a 2013 Ram 208000 diesel, I know for a fact those are OEM. And that is my towing rig. I use the jake brake a lot.
my JK is used off road mostly.
