Worthless or not?

Hi guys. I own an automotive repair shop and a customer came in to replace his Brembo brake calipers due to some scuffs on the paint. It's a 2014 Jeep Cherokee SRT. He also brought me some new rotors and pads.

Here is the advice I'm looking for and perhaps I can help out one of the guys here. Since there are nothing wrong with the old Calipers, rotors and pads they could be installed on another vehicle.

Would they be an upgrade for someone? If so would they bolt onto other model chrysler or Jeep?

Thanks for the help!

Not really an upgrade. Why don't I send you the money for shipping them to me and I'll show them in my garage to collect dust

Yes, they are a relatively cheap way to upgrade brakes on a non SRT Jeep to Brembos. People argue you don't need them for the street as the stock tires are the weak link. However, larger diameter rotors and 6 piston calipers always sounds good in my book.

They won't fit under any of the stock wheels on the non-SRT8's so if the person did decide to put these on their Jeep they would also need at least 20" wheels with a much more aggressive offset than stock.
