EBC Yellowstuff | Powerslot Rotors Install

Coming from a Summit Hemi with the HD brakes into a 2014 Diesel with the same brakes I always felt that the brakes just needed a little bit more in the "feel" and consistency department. Knowing I needed to tow a heavy load right after I purchased my jeep, the first order was to upgrade the brakes in the best way I knew how: Pads, Rotors, Lines, Fluid.

Pads - EBC Yellowstuff - These are pretty aggressive and perhaps I could have been fine with the Redstuff. They take a little while to bed in all while being a little noisy. However after the brakes have mated and one does the 10 60-0 stops, they perform awesome. They are grabby and do not fade. They actually get better the hotter you run them.

Rotors - Powerslot slotted rotors. Again, probably a little overkill, but I went with it anyways. This adds to the grabbiness of the feel and am very happy with my current pedal pressure and modulation

Goodrich Lines - DO NOT FIT the 2014 HD Brakes. I'm not sure if anyone has tried another year, however the female portion of the line that mates with the male portion of the hard line is too deep. the hardline will not bottom out and create a proper seal and you will be leaking fluild all over the place. I put the stockers back on.

ATE SL6 Fluid - Since my original intention was to bleed the fluid because I was changing lines I bought new fluid as well. According to the marketing materials this fluid is DOT 3/4 compliant and is optimized for modern braking systems that have ABS blocks and use the brakes for traction control requiring very quick modulation of the brakes. fluid held up just fine during my bed in period. I'll probably never exceed the wet boiling temp of this fluid, but at least I know I'm well covered. rant - it's a load of BS that the DOT banned SuperBlue ATE because it's "colored". Flushing brake fluid was a cinch when you could use two different colors with the same formulation. /rant

general observations - this combo is great for me and I love the grabbiness of the brakes. I had zero issues coming to a halt or rapidly slowing down even going downhill with 5500lbs pushing me forward. (yes, i had trailer brakes to help) Putting around daily is nice and the feel is confidence inspiring.
