CONFIRMED! Heavy duty brake bolt on in place of ND brakes
 
Here is the shopping list below:



68052372AA
front caliper mount code BR6 Left
68052372AA
front caliper mount code BR6 Right
68035012AB
front brakes, rotor Grand Cherokee w/Heavy Duty Brakes x2
68052380AA
rear brake caliper Grand Cherokee Right w/Heavy Duty Brakes
68052381AA
rear suspension, brake components, caliper Left
68052374AA
rear suspension, brake components, caliper mount code BR1 & BR6 Left or Right x2
68035022AB
Rear brake rotor Grand Cherokee w/Heavy Duty Brakes x2



Only the front rotor is 350MM

The rear rotor is exactly the same diameter as the solid rotor at 330mm just the width has changed due to the vented portion

Here is the good news if you have the 17" wheels and want to add vented rear rotors you can do it.

Here are the pictures showing the parts with differences.

Here you can see the difference in placement of the rotor path in the adapter.

Outstanding work! How much was this upgrade?

Everything came up to $511.00 for the brake parts. It could have been cheaper if the rear calipers didn't have a core charge.

If you can pick up the rear calipers and adapters in a salvage yard you may be able to come in at a lower price.

I had to order a Door and they were shipping it by pallet so I don't really know what the shipping was if it was based on weight.

The front rotors and caliper adapters are pretty heavy.

The rear brake components are reasonable light.

I am hanging onto to all the parts since the other jeep can use them. Or I may just upgrage the rear brakes on the other jeep to vented since they will still fit under the 17" wheels

Great Job!
I have a few questions regarding the job. Were the bolts that hold the caliper brackets reusable or were they stretch bolts and do the bolts that hold the caliper in lace require locktite and do you know the torque settings for those bolts?
Thanks.

As far as I know the bolts are reusable.

Yes loctite is a must.

I don't know what the torque settings are, I don't own a torque wrench either.

Thanks for this info, I'll be doing this at some point to my 3.6 as I tow, and who doesn't want better brakes. Rep for you.

I see the front caliper is black and has a Mopar symbol on it; where did you get those? I thought all the parts were basically a zinc color as the old ones you have?
