I was wondering if anyone knows what is wrong with my Jeep. I have an '03 TJ (Sport with Rubicon D-44's). Last night as I left for work and went to back out of my driveway it felt like my parking brake was stuck and I heard what sounded like a brake squeek. It did it again when I got to work and this morning when I left but was fine when I got home. It only happened while backing, there is no unusual resistance while traveling forward. This doesn't make sense to me, that it would only stick in reverse. A guy at work told me it might be the t-case, but that really doesn't make sense to me. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
P.S. I'm not sure if it matters but this is the first time its been in cold weather, I recenly moved from Cali and last night was by far the coldest the Jeep has seen.

It is possible one of your rear brake shoes were sticking to the drum That is if you still have drums in the rear. Is it still doing it?

My guess would be the same as Silvergoat's! Pull off the tires and take a look!

I plan on pulling off the tires and looking, but I won't have time for a couple days.
