I have heard that Jeep did some improvement on the rotors from WJ to WK models. I had front rotors replaced early (40K miles) on my '00 GC Laredo. The rotors on the '03 GC Laredo were better and were original when I got rid of it at 75K miles. The '08 WK has 46.5K miles and shows no signs of problems. Same with the pads.
Not sure exactly what I'll do at replacement time, but probably OEM if they continue to perform as they have so far (and the price is reasonable).
'08 WK Limited, 5.7L HEMI, Quadra-Trac II, Bright Silver Metallic, Class IV Hitch, Michelin LTX M/S tires, Billet Technology oil catch can, Fumoto oil drain valve.
