Advice needed on new brakes

Time has come to replace my ORIGINAL 2004 brakes on my WJ. They withstood the previous owner until 2007, and my putting them through hell until about 2 days ago... and finally... i hear the wonderful sound of the indicator telling me its time to part with them.

My question -- This is my daily driver so i really have no interest in any sort of brake upgrade... What do you all reccomend on the Jeep as a smooth, low dust pad (similar to stock)...

Also~ I've seen the mopar "make it new" kits, is that my best bet? If it his how much do those go for?

I'm surprised your rotors haven't warped. My 04 WJ's rotors warped 4 times in the 3 years I had it.

I suggest you go with OEM if you are happy with it and if you want to change, I have heard good things about Stillen pads.
