Had to drop off the jeep again.

Well, my brakes went out today. Upon further inspection, it seems the passenger side brake line was long enough to let the wheel rub a hole in it and dumped all my fluid onto the road.

So, service #2. 2300 miles.


Grrrrrr.

2300 miles and brakes are going out? I hope this isn't normal.

Looks like a realy poor design to me. The brake lines run right next the the wheel and are not clipped up out of the way.

Makes me love my blue stainless brake lines that much more.
