My house is on a hill and inevitably my jeep is parked on a hill in the driveway. I have noticed that my e-break is NOT holding my Jeep. if i get into my jeep and start it, as soon as soon as i push my clutch in I immediately roll back no matter how hard i pull on the E-Brake it wont hold when i park. BUT if im rolling and i yank the ebrake it will slam on the brakes. I dont like that my tranny/engine is holding my jeep and NOT the ebrake
2012 JK sport S with 2,035 miles. is there an adjustment I can do or do i need to take it into the stealer?

On the JK do not adjust the line as previous year Jeeps. The JK uses a parking shoe inside the brake rotor. They must be adjusted independently, preferably while sliding the rotor on and off to check adjustment. All it takes is forgetting to release the parking brake one time and driving for a short distance to glaze/wear the shoes and require adjustment.
Don't go to a dealer if you can do it yourself in 25% of the time
Thanks for the write-up. I took mine in to have it looked at and they told me it holds on a 30 degree incline and did nothing. . Basically it just holds on that last click. They also told me it was basically one free time to look at it.
