Pm Steve at R1 concepts. He will hook you up. Great deals and great service and no more squeal. Temporary solution is to bed in the brakes. Might help for awhile

I got mine about 3 weeks back with about 39.6 on the clock and the day after I got it home the brakes sounded like the air brakes from a trailer but loud like a train horn, it was horrible and pretty embarrasing lol. I took it back to the dealer and they asked me to replicate it so I put it in reverse in the service garage with all the doors closed and they started screaming (so did everyone in the room) haha. They inspected it and told me it had after market brakes and pads like the ones you get from napa...they ordered stock replacements and a week + $1.6k worth of their free money later and no more train horn letting people know I'm coming to a stop behind them lol

Just took my jeep to midas and they told me my rotors and pads need to be replaced , so I contacted the dealership where I bought the jeep and told them and it looks like they might cover costs.

It's a safety item so they have to cover it for a certain amount of time and they also take into consideration mileage since it is a wear item...
