Looks nice! How much did you pay for the Brake kit?

The Brembos are not that much money really...I found mine off EBAY - There's a guy there that takes off brembos from the factory some how and then sells them cheap...I bought the front/rear calipers including pads and pins for like $950

The only other thing you need is the rotors -Front/rear

I went with the Hawk Sector 27 rotors and pads and that was like $600 I think for both Front/Rear

I also changed the stock rubber lines with some Gtech Flex lines but you really don't need to do that...the stock rubber hoses work fine

I put the Brembos on in preparation for the Supercharger I installed ...The Brembos look so much beefier than the stock calipers ...that's for sure

Sorry for late reply. In terms of the license plate, I just used the same license plate and the same holes to cover up the winch opening. I did have to cut off some tabs on the back of the license plate to get it to fit. Btw, I did try buying the rugged ridge license plate holder but it didn't fit. There are a couple of more license plate holders out there but they want $80+ and I don't think they are worth that much. One of these days I'll make my own.

That reminds me of these pictures of interiors of homes posted on Zillow. When they show the kitchen, the refrigerator always looks 7 feet wide, because they shoot it with a wide angle lens in order to make everything look bigger than it is.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 today?

I'm getting my front windows tinted to match the back as I type. Best tint guy in Chicago, 3rd time I've used him. I'll put pics up soon. I've been lurking for a while and this is my first post. My first Jeep as well. So happy to have a luxury (Summit) vehicle that can tow my Harleys.

I put Brembos on my 2012 Overland and they squeal like crazy. Hawk pads on the front. Stoptech on the rear. They are not good for city driving. Once they heat up there OK.

Of course. I did everything right! They stop great but like I said when there cold they squeal. I don't drive it very far every day so it's embarrassing. People look and say nice brakes then when I drive it... NOISE. More then likely it's because I don't drive it enough. I'm not knocking them down. They stop on a dime and look cool.Just something I'll have to live with I guess... Or maybe get a softer pad...

But yeah...you gotta go out and thrash them ever so often...even the brembo engineers say that.
