My car is at the dealers right now. They tell me my problem is severely warped rotors and metal to metal brakes. As I said in other posts the dealership replaced the rotors a couple of weeks after I bought it because they had a "bad batch." How could they go so quickly? I hope they don't try to charge me for this. My jeep only has 16,000 mi. on it. Surely they do not go bad every 16,000 mi. What do you folks think?
Not under warranty....364.00 out the door. I hope this does not happen every 16,000 mi.

I have a 2006 Unlimited, and had the rotors go bad at 7,000mi. The dealer fixed them no charge (like I was going to pay), and now at 12,000mi they're going bad again. Unfortunately I'd be happy with your 16,000mi. .

This should be something that they fix at NO cost, especially since my 3 year warranty is not up. I think I will contact someone in consumers affairs in my state of Ct. I would like to know how many others have this type of problem and why most vehicles do NOT have this problem. There has to be some kind of defect.

Was wondering,,,have 33 inche tires on my 99 Wrangler...my question is, if I go to 35's does the rearend support this...not sure if I have to change the gears before going to this size tire....Thanks

With 35's, you WILL want to regear. Depending on engine and transmission, you may want to consider 4.88's. If you have the dana 35, you will want to reconsider strengthening it with alloy shafts (that have a higher spline count), or swap in a stronger axle.

This is an easy question. No answers?

They are fixing the Steering Shimmy tomorrow. It is still under warranty so no charge to me.

600-750 sounds about right for my TJ. When it's cold, it idles around 750. As it warms up, idle goes down.
I have 4.88's too and I can crawl down hills w/o using brakes at all. I also have 33" MT's. The issue that is the difference is the transmission's ratio. The manual's first gear is not geared the same as the first gear on the automatics, which would probably explain the descent down the hill is faster than you'd expect with 4.88's. I often have to GIVE it gas going down a hill.
All that said, I have the 2.5L engine as well with stock t-case. Is it possible the IAC is misreading the idle speed?

I really would like to know more about your problem. I have a 2000, where oil pressure will drop to 10 on idle when warm. I am worried about burning up the tp end.
