All i can suggest is that you probably have a brake hanging up. To check and see which one it is, drive the vehicle and feel (carefully in case its real hot) to see which wheel is hotter than the others. I use a hand held electronic temperature sensor, but you can tell by feel. Rick

The noise could be connected to the parking brake, or it could be a loose brake pad. When you engage the brakes the pads strike the rotors and then can not move around.

2001 jeep cheroke brakes overheating

first off was it raining if could have debris on brake pads and rotors if not under heavy braking for that amount of time you would heat your pads to the point of burning wich the metalic in the pad gets glazed as does the rotor after cooling down it would be normal again but your brakes work with friction wich stops you as far as the pulling one or both of your calipers should be serviced to grease up sliding points one is hanging up

When braking and slowing down on my 1998 Jeep Cherokee , Jeep pulls to the right. Also when my parking brake is fully engaged Jeep rolls down my driveway. Mechanic told me parking brake was fine.

parkng brake likely needs adjustment. so that's that.

for the 1st part of your post however, do the following and in this order.

CHECK YOUR AIR PRESSURE. A low tire on one side and not the other WILL CAUSE PULL. It's a super cheap fix and you'll feel like a genius. After that, rotate tires if the problem still exists. if that doesn't do it then take it in.
