Re: Long overdue SilverSurfer update...

Thanks guys, I'll update you on the Stillens once I get them broken-in and get a few miles on them.

Yeah I know I need to get some touch-up, I've just been lazy.

Taking off the calipers and them cleaning them to be painted can be a PITA, especially if you had as much rust as I did, so thats why I got all new calipers, makes life easier.

Re: Long overdue SilverSurfer update...

Great looking Jeep! I love the painted calipers, and I have been looking at getting a similar set of tail lights, as soon as I get some spending money!

Not so sure about that V8 badge though, ever since I removed all of mine I think the totally clean look is the way to go. Whatever you like though, its your Jeep!

How much was it for the Rotors and calipers? Was it an easy install? I'm looking to do something like this for my back brakes

For the front akebono calipers with new brackets it was $290(no core charge), rear calipers were $225($100 core) so acually $125.
The Stillen rotors and pads all the way around were around $600
It's an easy install but the biggest PITA is bleeding the brake system to get the air out, NOT FUN!

Re: Long overdue SilverSurfer update...

Looks awesome. I'm looking at buying those exact tail lights this Thursday. Was it just plug n play? And how do you like them so far?

Re: Long overdue SilverSurfer update...

Nice work! Especially on that paint job! Can I ask what you have going on at the trailer wire hook up? Is that an auxillary reverse light or something?

Also, I'd highly recommend you look into LED bulbs from VLEDS to replace the incandescents in the tail lights. It would really complete the look.
