Default Jeep pulls to the right during braking

I noticed yesterday that after driving the TJ in stop and go traffic (20 miles) and an hour that when hitting the brakes the Jeep would pull pretty good to the right.

I'm thinking it's time to replace the calipers. Rotors and pads may have 5k miles on them.

This morning on the way to work, no pull.

Driving home today it started doing that pull to the right thing again after about 10 miles of driving. I turned on to a street that didn't have anyone on it and hard braked a few times. I think the cylinder was sticking because it stopped pulling.

I'm going to replace the calipers and while I'm at it I'll put some extended stainless steel brake lines on there.

I had to do the same thing to mine, my right one was locking up and then the left on started doing it. Easy fix. Lol

Last time I had this symptom. it was a failing caliper. One of them ended up seizing on me.

Damn! I can't remember if I changed the calipers on the TJ. I know I did on the XJ. It seems to do it on the TJ after the brakes heat up. I'll have to have a look at them, hopefully I'll be able to tell if they are rebuilts that I put on their recently. That's the problem with having two XJ's and a TJ, they all look the same under the body!
