Unlimited Wrangler is the 4 door model of the Jeep Wrangler not unlimited brake pads.
brake pads life will depend on:
1) Type of driving you do (City, highway or off-roading/rock crawling)
2) Size & weight of tire you will use (Stock vs +35" mudder) and some off-road tires E-load will weigh about +20lbs/tire more than stock P rated tires
3) Depends if you have a Auto or 6 speed in which you can downshift to allow the motor to slow your vehicle more
4) Aftermarket add ons like front & rear bumpers, winch, cargo racks, etc. will add to the overall weight of the Wrangler putting more wear on the pads.
5) If you go mudding the mud/debris may cause the caliper to stick and cause pre-mature wearing your pads and rotors.
I only have 10,000 miles on my 08 and I am running 35's I have had not issues with pad wear. However, some owners have had to replace there rear pads at approx 25,000miles due to running big tires (35 & 37") tires and also, done lots of mudding and caused the caliper to stick creating pre-mature wear.
Also, side note the 3.8L V6 maybe a mini van motor but it has just as much Torque, more HP and gets better Fuel Mileage than the I6 4.0L.
Jeep Jk Brake Pads
This has everything to do with driving habits, you stop hard they go quicker. If you coast down and begine braking sooner they will last longer. On average you will need front pads between 30,000 and 50,000 miles. I have a 2007 unlimited and i just passed 24,000 miles and my front pads still have over 50% left. I am guessing they will be finished around the 50,000 mile mark.
to jtexas: there not unlimited, thats the car model. no brake pads last forever, those ones that are advertised from midas or whatever dont last forever, they are just really really hard and cheap. basically the crappiest brakes you can get, thats how they get away with that. i know from experience. my mom had a pair on her car and we used them up in about 3 months. dont get me wrong, i did drive the car hard, but they were ****. squealed all the time. and not good at heat.
since it is a 2008, it is plastic, so not very long... Buy a wrangler that is before 2007, and you will get a real jeep that is made of metal. Plus you will be able to go somewhere with the inline 6 vs the mini van motor they have in the new wranglers.
Depends on the driver. Five minutes if your going through the Rockies pulling a trailer while dragging the brakes.Flat terrain with a good driver, fronts-30,000 miles, rears- at least double that.
"unlimited brake pads"? if they're really unlimited, don't they last forever?
