I have purchased a 1999 Wrangler sport 4.0L for my wife wich replaced a Chevey S10 extended cab truck.
We tow a four winns fling jet boat that weighs about 1000 LBS.
The wrangler tows it great as we are 10 minutes from the lake but upon backing down the ramp the front tires lock up & start to skid causing loss of control as you can imagin.
I have replaced all the pads, drums & rotors as they needed it & I tought this would fix the problem but it didn't.
I noticed that using Nutrual instead of reverse helps alot.
So I guess it can be a a high iddle problem also.
I have a couple questions
1. The Idle is at 900 is this high or not ?
2. I thought this Jeep has ABS as it has the light & it's on the window sticker build sheet, so do I have a ABS problem?
3. I read that the master cylinder adjusts the rear breaking, so could it be a master cylinder problem?
I can rebuild most anything & have all the tools needed to work on Trucks, cars, & Cycles and boats but I'm new to the Jeep wranglers fixs & problems but I'm sure with time I'll learn the Qurks!
Any insight would be appreaceated
