Are you getting hot-spots on the rotors from a dragging calliper? This would be seen on the rotors as shaded areas of different color.

Almost sounds like your abs is kicking in at highway speeds but no in town. Feel anything on the brake pedal?

Kinda does sound like the rotors have warped already. WJs have a tendency to do that. Everything tight down there and wheels all balanced? How many miles are we looking at?

Rotors and pads(AutoZone parts) got about 5k on them, but that's 95% highway miles though.
maybe that's my problem, AutoZone?

Maybe...never can tell with those guys

Might just get the rotors turned for giggles and grins. 10 bucks a piece or so at Checker. Make sure to ask the guy if they were funky. Sometimes they know their butt from a hole in the ground.

Also make sure you don't overtorque the lugs!

1) Did it all of a sudden start or has it been getting worse?
2) You're wheeling are shaking as well as your steering wheel?
3) Does it pull to one direction or another?
4) Does it happen when you are braking AND hit a pothole for instance?
5) If you hit your brakes hard from 60 all the way down to zero at which point does it stop shaking?

It been doing it sence I got it. I'm not sure what you mean in second question.
No, it's staying straight when I'm braking. I haven't hit a pot hole wile bracking on the highway yet, but I'm sure it will do it to.
I have to try the #5.
Thanks
