No man, I don't mind you asking at all, happy to share. I run Raybestos R300 performance rotors F&R (P/N 780289PER and 780296PER) http://www.raybestosbrakes.com/magno...ce-rotors.html With Hawk performance LTS pads. (P/N HB558Y.710 and HB555Y.678.) http://www.hawkperformance.com/perfo...ight-truck-SUV Being that since it's inception the JGC has had notoriously under sized brakes, they warp OE rotors and scorch pads quickly and easily causing decreased stopping power and distance, fading pedal, and vibration under braking. I put these brakes on about 5 yrs and 60k miles ago and they are still stopping great with very minimal wear (better than 80% pad wear left and no rotor wear yet) and absolutely no brake noise. If anyone is looking at brakes I obviously recommend giving this setup some consideration.

Im kinda doing the same but in a different approach tho. Up until my wheels were stoled I planned on doing suspension upgrades and visual as well. But because that happened and my pay is back to normal I had to redo my plans and budget. Thats why I slowed way the heck down on mods from January to now. You remember how fast I was picking up stuff in January right?

That sounds like a solid setup. Im running R1concepts premium slotted rotors front and rear with wagner thermoquiet ceramic pads. I have a set of stoptec SS lines waiting for me back home.
