Not sure which size of 9 inch you have, ours is out of a ranchero, we use rotors for a '90 Jeep cherokee, and calipers from a chevy.

Our rules say you can run a Ford 9" and that a floater is actually recommended. The rule state you can not run aftermarket rotors. Is it possible to do this with one of the aftermarket 9" like Speedway Engineering or Afco, for example?

Depends on your tech guy (or girl). Some of the reasons for not allowing after market rotors is the idea to keep the cost down for the racers. Stock stuff found in a bone yard is usually cheaper. A Mopar buddy of mine hooked me up with the Cherokee rotors for my 9". Brackets for mounting came from Speedway. Simple.

Front or rear on the Cherokee rotors?

Sorry I haven't gotten back with you. I can not get ahold of my friend who gave me the set of rotors. I want to say the fronts but am not sure. I'll keep trying.

Okay, I just got off the phone with MISTER CHRYSLER himself, and he said this: 93 - 98 Jeep Grand Cherokee FRONT rotors. Not sure if regular Cherokee rotors are the same. Use only OEM Chrysler rotors. They are composite and the aftermarket stuff IS NOT. The Grand Cherokee rotors are more money, but there isn't a comparison (quote my buddy). Here endith the lesson,...

Sorry I didn't get this info to you sooner,...

I have been repairing and fixin' my GM CAR.

Race on.
