Front Brake Problem TJ HELP

I was pulling my subdivision and went to put on brakes and jeep pulled very hard to left. I got it home and could smell brake burning smell on front right. I have checked fluid and front break line and all looks good. Rotor and pads wearing smooth. Could it be a caliber gone bad?

I'm pretty sure that the Wranglers aren't rated for towing anything heavy, let alone pulling your whole subdivision.

I kid, I kid.
Seriously though, mine does this as well, so I'll be lurking in the shadows on this one!

Front Brakes

Same thing happened to me on the 97 TJ. Darn near burned it up. The problem was a stuck right front caliber. Had to have a new rotor, caliber, pads, brake fluid. Got so hot the fluid boiled. Find yourself a good brake shop, as you need good brakes.

I ended up having to replace the calipers...I took the old one off and cleaned and reinstalled and it locked right up..So I headed to the parts house and bought 2 new one and just got back from a test drive. I am back in business

I feel your pain!
Having a project vehicle as a DD is sometimes less than convenient.
That's why I am kind of ignoring my brake problem - it pulls left, I know it pulls left. I also know I need to have it resolved before the snow flies though
