Re: CONFIRMED! Heavy duty brake bolt on implace of ND brakes

My 2014 GC Overland with ORAII does NOT have vented rear brakes.

You would think that getting the off road package (18" wheels + skids) and being equipped with the 6200 lbs tow package, it would have HD brakes.

As long as your rims are bigger than 17" you will be fine, spacers won't do anything.

Only with the hemi do you get the HD brakes apparently.

Re: CONFIRMED! Heavy duty brake bolt on implace of ND brakes

Is the master cylinders the same in regular duty verse heavy duty?

Re: CONFIRMED! Heavy duty brake bolt on implace of ND brakes

master cylinder is the same; that's the good part about this swap. It's just the hardware.

Re: CONFIRMED! Heavy duty brake bolt on implace of ND brakes

What sucks is in the US only the HEMI get them, but the EXPORT models with the BR1 code (european antilock brakes) get them standard.

Dave like to other poster said the spacers won't help in this situation because the of the inside diameter of the wheel is the issue.


Maybe the spacer would have helped if the caliper was interfering with the spoke.

Re: CONFIRMED! Heavy duty brake bolt on implace of ND brakes

so in order to upgrade to HD brakes and have vented in the rear, it will require replacing the whole caliper. That means disconnecting brake line, right?

Moves out of my DIY ability. Would that mean you have to bleed the line and such?

That is all correct. Bleeding brakes is not too hard though, although once you decide to do it, you can't stop in the middle and try and take it somewhere.

Yup; my '13 Limited with ORAII and tow package, too, does not have the HD brakes. I seriously considered the highly affordable HD 13.8" front-rotor package, but I think I'm going for the SRT8's 15" front rotors; they will fit under my wheels.

Re: CONFIRMED! Heavy duty brake bolt on implace of ND brakes

I did this over the weekend; I only did the front.

Bought rotors, brackets and pads.

Actually very easy to do; calipers on the 2011's are very easy to get on and off.

A couple things I'll mention.

1) There is an oring around the hub where the rotor sits; at first I couldn't figure out why the rotors refused to come off. I then cut the oring and the rotors came right off.

2) The caliper pins use a hex bit to remove; it's an odd size and I didn't have the exact size. One of the bits I has was close enough to break it loose. I'm not sure what the actual size is?

Overall very easy to do; I think there is a noticeable difference in the amount of brake applied with minimal effort. With the SD brakes I sometimes felt like I had to really apply the brakes to get them to stop but these are much better.

I may or may not do the rear brakes.

Re: CONFIRMED! Heavy duty brake bolt on implace of ND brakes

I have a 2014 overland with the hemi V8, tow package and ORA2, when I leave work I will confirm if I have the vented rear break rotors or not.
