How To Install Power Stop Brakes + Stoping Distance Test – Jeep Wrangler JLU

How To Install Power Stop Brakes + Stoping Distance Test – Jeep Wrangler JLU

Its here… the Z36 Sever Duty Truck and Tow brake upgrade for the Jeep JL and JLU. Today I’ll show you how to install the brake kit including the brake rotors, brake pads, calipers, caliper bracket, and brake lines on all 4 corners. We will also bleed the brakes and then I’ll show you how to bed in or break in (no pun intended) the brake pads and rotors. After that we’ll do another test and compare stopping distance from the Powerstop upgrade compared to the factory brakes.

Factory set up is pretty weak WOW

Ron Cua says:

Great video , how do you like the calipers ? I got the rotors and pads for now.


You regear?

YouTube TV says:

holy shit they're $1200?!

TroubleSeavsUSMC says:

#BleepinJeep, I have been told to stay away from the drilled rotors due to the rapid cooling around the holes while out wheeling/heavy breaking which will cause cracks and damage to the rotors. What do you think? Would you trust the drilled rotors over long term and heavy weekend wheeling?
Love your videos, keep them coming!

Chris Larsen says:

I have a 2020 ECO diesel Rubicon 4 door JL I’m running 37 tires. I’ll probably upgrade my axels in a few years and tires up to 40’s if I did upgraded my breaks now could/would a person be able to reuse the Z36 brakes on 1 ton axels? Thx love the videos.

What year is your wrangler?

SlowMovin51 says:

Just curious if stock front JL caliper brackets would bolt on to a JK? This would be a cheap big brake kit for a JK with JL rubicon calipers, pads and rotors. 302mm to 342 mm and with twin piston.

Steven Sander says:

Good work, excellent video!

A ti says:

How are they holding up, and how do you keep the mud and sand out of them?

Rick Kerr says:

Great video! Thank you!

K Digiacomo says:

I mentioned to Trailrecon about they might need a break in and when loaded they would show how good they really are. He said his got better after they broke in, and also were far better after he loaded his Jeep. Hard to tell empty, loaded made the big difference. Less brake fade and heat!

Omar Villa says:

No happy dance at my house either so I switched to speed bleeders on all of my cars. Makes it an easy one-man job.

jesse davis says:

Finally got around to watching this video. Most people don’t think about the brakes when going to larger tires, so good job. Nice to see your wife in the video, she did a great job also.
So when did you bust the windshield? Haven’t noticed it before but I am old so…

nflook765 says:

If at all possible, DO NOT use your wife as the pedal pusher while bleeding. Just trust me, it never ends in a dance-off.

Matt Strunk says:

Great videos…I wheeled with your group in your awesome trucky at AOP this year at Crawlin for Reed. Are you going to add a catch can to help with the motor smoking on steep inclines? I saw this one:

michael says:

unless u can't do it because of braided lines, its best to pinch ur brake hoses, open up the bleeder and then to shove ur pistons back into the caliper body. caliper fluid is always filthy, as was evident by the fluid in ur bleeder bottle, and shoving that crap back into ur abs module could create problems.
also, if u don't have an assistant, u can bleed brakes by opening the bleeder and attaching a hose immersed in clean brake fluid, and then just pump the brakes repeatedly.

Maxim van Wijk says:

Nice brakes! If you are going to build a trailer, are you going to do what I have seen some XJ owners do and use a salvage XJ (in your case salvage JL) as basis for it? Seems like great little BJ project.

MrCloudseeker says:

I installed these brakes on my 2 door after the 35's and it made a huge difference. More than 8 feet, but 2 door jeep is a bit lighter as well. And I see you cleaned the paint off the door before your "assistant" helped with the brake bleeding 🙂

Micheal Dingle says:

Love the video. I have a 16 jku and was wondering the differences between stock and this kit. As far as life of the brakes I have 69k on the jeep and 35s since 27k. It's on its 2nd set of pads and still have the original rotors with no warping. Very impressed with the life of the stock stuff.
