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

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

cru9 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

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.
