Thats a good looking Jeep, I like the older Jeep Alloy's you had on there. What rear axle do you have underneath it?

Having some troubles with my drum breaks. Ok so when I park and I use my ebrake it works fine but as soon as I jump in it again and drive away my right rear locks up instantly when I apply the breaks but after a few minuets of driveing it goes away. I pulled the drums off today and everything looks fine so I sprayed it down with cleaner and it still does it just not as bad anyone know what it could be?

I'd say White would look good but if you get a nice red then itd look pretty good as well.

when you use the E brake it pulls a mechanical lever to activate the brakes instead of the little pistons you may have binding in the mechanical arm.

alright I just put it back together ill next time it does it ill check it again. I had a problem a few months back and had to replace all the springs cuz everything got mangled. The cylinders looked good tho. I might just do it all again cuz my bleeders are seized and i need brake lines anyways. do you think the cold could have anything to do with it?
