Hello all,

Bit the bullet and had this kit fitted today. I tried upgrading the pads but that made little difference. This kit is fantastic and whilst a decent sum of money, it really is worth every penny. Especially driving around in busy Dubai traffic when not everyone has the same reactions times!

Now I really do enjoy drivng my 392 with confidence.

Make no difference in the desert as we hardly use our brakes but this mod was always for the road.

In my humble opinion there is 60 percent less travel on the pedal, the feel and modulation is progressive and not grabby and I would say 40-50% more stopping power.

You also only need a light touch when sitting at lights on idle as appose to having to push what feels like 10 cm or more on stock brakes which for me was a pain.

Thanks for the good info. Your 392 come as a non XR?

Yup. It was non XR as in it didn’t have the gear ratio and 35 inch tires, just 33 stock. Brakes are the same though regardless.
 
Great information! I had my eyes on the same kit before I got my rig delivered. Been daily driving for 4 months and I can definitely feel the need of upgrade.

My very next upgrade! Thanks for the info.

You won’t regret it! I had to take the car back today as I was get a very slight skimming sound from the rear left rotor when the wheel was under load and at half lock on the steering wheel. The back plate just needed trimming back a little more. Just something to be aware of.

Are you talking about that thin metal heat/dust shield? I thought we can bent it for clearance. Do you really have to cut?

I actually had it cut and smoothed off. With the type of desert driving I do it’s better for me and the finish is much cleaner. Also my garage said cos if the way the suspension is set up on the 392 there’s less room to bend it back, compared to a normal JL. I took his word for it.
 
EBC Brakes is a good option, I used the Slotted/Dimpled rotors on my TJ using their brake pads i believe it was yellow stuff up front and green stuff on the rear... made a huge improvement running 37’s back then on a TJ.. nice thing is the rotors come anodized making a nice looking installation..
I can’t find these to fit the 392.
Have you?
This is all I’ve ran on my previous vehicles.

You can only get them for the fronts right now. They haven’t made them
For the rears yet. I have two sets, as they weren’t enough for me, hence why I did the teraflex upgrade. Where do you live, you can buy them off me 50 of the cost?

I appreciate the offer. I prefer to have a full set. Waiting to see if they develop a set.
 
I’m going to do some investigating. Last time I went down this path, and there was “no option”, I found EBC simply hadn’t updated their database yet.
I found them to meet my needs in the past. I’m also biased as I used EBC on my race vehicles.

A quick look into cross referencing, shows the rotors and pads on an Unlimited Rubi, is the same part numbers 392.
If this is accurate, EBC is just behind the curve.

Fair dos.

Just know though, the stock calipers are so insufficient in my opinion for the weight of the car. 2 at the front and just one on the back. Also 70pc of the braking bias is at the front so waiting for the full set and even l putting on the yellow stuff pads, which I did, really didn’t make any difference. At best 10pc improvement. I waited 4 months for them to make the rears.

I never preferred the yellow pad. If I recall, thats their “stock” equivalent. The green is better.

Correct the green is their equivalent. If you want more stopping power and improved braking then I doubt the green pad will make any difference. The yellow has more bite and then blue even more, however they are really for the track. The yellow pad whilst I ran it for a month, the amount of brake dust is insane.
 
Just saw you’re in the UAE? shipping would be a killer. 🤣
