I thought maybe it was some kind of beer launcher...press a button on the fob and a beer shoots out.

I think that was the original idea, but he is now complacent with it's alternate functionality

Long time listener, first time poster! I've been waiting for a thread like this to pop up to ask my dumb question. Haha. I've found some similar situations, but not sure if they are exactly the same as mine.

My Jeep handles just fine cruising around town, and even on the interstate. However, when I want to get after it, as soon as I hit 85 mph it pulls to the right and makes a weird noise. It sounds like its coming from the front right wheel. I'm afraid to go any faster to see if it goes away. I mean, I didn't get this thing to be happy cruising around at the speed limit. Any thoughts?

Thanks for the thread! I'll still welcome any smack talk.

Sounds like that could be dangerous. Might want to get that checked out soon if you won't be making the repairs yourself.

How are your tires? Any vibrations? Feel it in the wheel or the seat? How hard is the pull to the right?

Tires are in good shape yet. They are the well liked Goodyear tires, but they are less than 6 months old. It does make a slight vibration when it pulls at exactly 85, but only when it pulls. It pulls hard enough to make me concerned. The first time I noticed it I wasn't expecting it obviously, so I'll say I'm glad I had a good grip of the wheel. But once I let off it goes away and all is fine and dandy.

I had same symptoms, turned out to be the stock goodyears. Thanks to this forum, I checked the inside of the front tires and they were separating. Cut my hand on the steel belts. It drove fine at low speeds but was awful at highway speeds.
