I need o replace my front and back brakes. I need to choose the right ones I go and play a lot in Mud and look for the biggest water puddles I can find. Which you normally don't do? I also have a 4inch lift 32 in tires. Any recommendations?

I was told I needed to replace my rotoars sometime soon any ideas on choosing these?

I was looking at both performance and regular help.

You might be best with ceramic pads if it sits for a while after going thorugh water. But you will be good with basic semi metallic pads.

For rotors, simple vented ones are the way to go, as I said, the rotors and pads are so close and basically touch constantly theres little mud and water to get in there.

"EBC GREENSTUFF 7000 SERIES BRAKE PAD SET"

those are very good brakes, my brother uses those, he said the rotor wear is incredibly low no noise nothing, and fast stopping. The redstuff series is more of a metallic pad and designed for faster braking and highway conditions, greenstuff is more orientated towards jeep owners that like to have fun in the mud!

But as stated, if you got the money go for those, if not any ceramic pad will sufice

one other thing, if youir going with drilled or cross cut rotors, if you get in mud, the mud will be packed in the holes, and it will be just like a solid rotor, ith less metal.

Go with the 7000 greens, better quality, but 6000 will be good enough.

Your back brakes drum type brakes?

I would go with oem rotors, cheaper and more material in them, plus they can be reground unlike the cross drilled.

That case I really wouldnt worry about getting special brakes.

As the brake drum and shield causes what is called a laberynth seal and no water or dirt can get in there, so basic brakes would be just fine!
