JIMBOX Hard to say, could be e-brake use (a lot), drive alone (alot), make left turns (alot)-

All conjecture, unless it's inspected !!

Can someone explain why the drivers rear rim was so severely discolored compared with the rest? Just curious.

MTH I agree with the other posters.

However, if I didn't, my view of the next step would be to obtain an affidavit of a competent independent mechanic stating his opinion that the real problem is XYZ, as well as his estimated cost of repair. I would expect you'd have to pay the mechanic a fee to provide this. If XYZ was indeed covered by a warranty, present the affidavit to the dealership, and demand repair. If they refuse, file a small claims suit. Your principal piece of evidence would be the affidavit.

Regardless, I think the dealership is probably right, so you're likely out of luck.

kik X2 with daggo. The 330 is gone.

daggo66 Actually that sounds right. JK's rear brakes wear notoriously fast. The E-brake has it own shoes.

Should be under warranty

I began to get a grinding noise in the rear brakes. Upon inspection I noticed the driver rear wheel discolored a rusty dark brown. The rest looked ok. I had to take the jeep in for a recall anyway so I explained the problem and they ended up selling me a rear only brake job. The jeep has 33500 miles. They put on a new rotor and pads. They said "debris" caused the problem. I think it was the ebrake being defective and not disengaging or a stuck caliper. Thoughts? Ammunition to fight the bill an get my 330 back? Thanks
