There is a letter number combo that is used to describe the shape of a brake pad.

Does anyone happen to know what this designation is for the Rubicon Rear brakes.

I need to this number to find out if a couple of brake pad options will work for the Rubicon Rears.

I looks through the FSM and couldnt seem to find anything.

Interesting.
Just called Jeep and he said the rear brake part number for discs is the same as for other TJs with rear discs. He only had 1 number in his system.
They had one set that was $50 for the axle from Vline. Or you could go with the more expensive ones that came on the vehicle. He doesnt recommend them because you pay more and get the same wear and performance.

So where was it originally stated that the rear discs are different?
and what is the source.

I would like to find out which is correct.

Same info as elff, all rear TJ discs are the same.

However they are not the same pads that are used on the Grand Cherokee's.

This is the info I have as well, the rear pads don't last long if you don't clean your brakes after wheelin. The caliper slide pins get crud in them and then they seize up and wear the inside pads cause they are dragin'. We've warrantied one set of rear pads on a Rubicon with only 11,000km's.
(same guy who bent his front upper control arms) :wtf:
