Paging Dr. House....Paging Dr. House

I have a diagnoses problem for you Jeep doc's out there. Whenever I put it in reverse it makes kind of a popping noise and it feels like the e-brake is on for just a second then it "breaks" and it goes just as smooth as ever. Any clues? Thanks in advance.

Does it only do it once? Does it have rear drums? Maybe a bad wheel cylinder?

Kinda sounds like what was happening on my gf's car when it had a sticky caliper. Maybe someone else has a better idea?

Sound like possibly a bad u-joint. Sometimes when those U-joints are used to going in one direction (i.e. when you have the car driving forward) they can act up when you have them spinning the opposite way (reverse).

Double check them and add some grease to the fittings. You may need to even replace them.

It does have drums.
I was thinking U-joint as well but I just checked them and greased them about a week and half and they were good. I have only noticed it since I put my hard top and hard doors back on. Do you think the extra weight could have caused a problem with a U-joint???

I guess it could be your gears, but you said the noise stops, so that makes me believe it is not. I dont think the extra weight could have caused the problem. The added weight only amounts to an average size male.
