Brake Slippage

I've had my 2014 GC for about a month now and I've noticed a few times when I'm coming in to a low speed stop it feels like the front brakes slip, but they do catch. It almost feels like the ABS kicking in. The roads that this happens on are standard city streets and I hadn't noticed if there was anything on the road.

This doesn't happen often and I have yet to figure out the exact situation to replicate the issue. I am wondering if others have had this issue. I have the Quadra-Trac II transfer case as well as the Quadra-lift Air Suspension. This is the first 4x4 Jeep that I've owned, so I don't know if it's just a quirk of the 4x4 system.

Re: Brake Slippage

Have you found the origin of your slippage? I might have something similar. I am wandering if either something loose in the caliper or the transmission is giving us this feedback.

Re: Brake Slippage

If the 8 speed behaves like the 5 speed then make sure the pressure in the front tires are even.

I notice I get a jerk in downshifting when the tire pressure is like 4 psi different.

I think it throws off the wheel speed sensors.
