    My 2012 jk comes to an abrupt stop sometimes when reversing, I disabled my hill stop assist but every now and then my jk comes to a screeching stop when backing up. I've talked to two jeep dealerships and they have never heard of this problem. Any ideas?

    Can you tell if you are getting the rear brakes hanging up? I would imagine that if it came to that much of a harsh stop you could probably see the rear end dip down.

    1. is this a manual or auto tranny?
    2. are you saying it slams on the brakes or just slips out of gear?

    Being a 6 speed, I assume you use the parking brake. Check to be sure it is releasing all the way. Shoes are designed to wedge in if they are used.

    How far does it move in reverse before this happens?
