Brakes starting to go
 
18 months ago I added some really cheap rotors and pads and I think they're starting to wear out. I'm think of getting powerstor rotors for all wheels and thermoquiet brake pads. Are these good choices? What else would you change while you're replacing the brakes? The drums look rusted too.. Am thinking of adding those red brembo caliper casings as well... Any advice appreciated, thx.

I have the powerstop rotors and so far they haven't given me any trouble. My advice stay way from caliper covers. In my opinion they just add unwanted heat to that area.

Doesn't the jeep already come with it's own stock caliper covers that write jeep on them? Or are those just calipers?

Why not stick with OEM parts from the dealer? I haven't found them to be that expensive and the original pads and rotors on my 2003 Liberty lasted over 100,000 miles.
