Hey all, just checking if this is somehow normal...

Was doing a lift on my fiance's JLU this weekend and noticed both front calipers seem to be shaved down in the exact same place? No damage or wear anywhere on the wheel so it's not rubbing.... Looks like it was installed this way?

We picked it up off the transport truck with 0 miles on it so not sure how else this could have happened.

Anyone else notice similar?

JLU Rubicon, JLU Sport, upgrades in progress!
That's the caliper bracket. Looks like early cuts to the rough casting before final machining. Nothing to worry about.

If you look at how rough the machining is on those, you'd think they were done by second graders that broke into a machine shop. But sadly that is how they are. Even the aftermarket brakes are no better.
