Enjoy that puppy!
X2 but check your brakes adjustment on the back first. The way I check it is to see what pedal you have to start with (with the engine running assuming you have PA brakes), then release the pedal. Push the E brake down until it just starts to firm up. Push your brakes again, release then after a second or two, push the brakes again. If you have good feel or "pedal" that says you need to adjust the shoes inside the drums. Hope it helps.

Just finshed installing a Pro Comp 4" lift with extended shackles, Xenon flat panel fender flares, and Pro Comp 15 X 10s with BFG KM2s 35/12.50/15s.

I think your on to something gazzo, thanks for the help. I must apologize, I'm not a car guy. I'm a photographer. What I noticed was even though I had the parking brake pushed down as far as I dare, when I took it out of gear on even a small hill it started rolling. I tried your test and I'm not sure of my results but I did not notice hardly any difference in the brake pedal throw with or without the parking brake applied. What does it mean?

Ok try this, with the engine running and the e brake off, pump the brakes a few times quickly and see if you get pedal. Sometimes fluid can get into the master cylinder (which is attached to your pedal) faster than your brake shoes retract and you can get more than the normal single push worth of fluid down into the brake slaves. If you do get good feel after 2 or 3 quick pumps you definitely need to adjust or replace the shoes inside the drums.

Edit: by the way how do you "just pick up" a stunning jeep like that? Every photo looks like a brochure or advertisement.

Thanks again for the help. Robert the second and longest owner took very good care of it but up close it does show it's age some. Cracking paint, dings etc. but I love it and plan on trying to keep it mostly stock. I won't tell you how little I paid for it or you might have to make a quick trip to the can.
