could be a long list of things - there are parts under the car that can fall down and drag ex: the plastic "debris guards" (can't call 'em skid plates) - someone should get under it and give it a close inpsection

As for the battery; that sounds like mine when the battery quit. I think the plates inside the battery broke loose and were shorting together. When they were apart- all was well. When they touched- nightmare. On my way to get the battery replaced I had to stop for cash and determined to leave the jeep running to prevent any drama with starting it again. Pulled up to the bank, shut it off out of habit. D'oh! Needed a jump to get it going and then it ran like crap, lunging and surging, lights flashing, for the quarter mile to the Sears auto center. The Sears auto tech couldn't get it started with his jump-box to get it into the shop. I think they just pushed it in. New battery and all is 100% again.

Check your brake lines back towards your rear diff. Mine fell down onto the driveshaft and caused a huge ruckus all under the Jeep.
It would only do it after hitting a bump and would go away after hitting another.

My ebake cable does rub heavily on the passenger side of the rear differential. I use zip ties now to keep it up. The padding around the cable now has a deep groove in it. Crawl under and check if its been severed.
