Breaking while in 4-wheel dr

Hello everybody I bought a 2007 Jeep Compass back in May of 2015 it's a 4wheel drive , 2.4 and a 5 speed, I put in 4 wheel when I bought it just to make sure it worked, and it did, anyhow we finally got a little snow here in mid-Missouri this morning and I go out to have a little fun, so I lock in the 4 wheel and turn off the ESP button leave the driveway to a street that hasn't been cleared yet hit the gas and swerve back and forth for a while and when I come to the stop sign i hit the brakes an it Jeep doesn't exactly stop like i think it should, what i mean it starts to buffet or a ratcheting type of sensation the best way to describe this is if you have ever driven a car that the brake pads are so worn out their grinding on the rotors except i don't get the noise but when I was on a cleared street everything worked fine. Is this some kind of ABS thing or something else? Has anybody had this issue? I have driven full sized pickup trucks and never had this problem.

Hey jaketsnake,

I am sorry to hear about your recent experience with your Compass. Have you looked to see if your vehicle has open recalls? You may do so by accessing this link: Safety Recall Information | MOPAR. Please contact me via private message, if you have any further questions.

Caliper pistons can hang up internal. Not seized but not it doesn't release fully. I've replace one of my rears calipers because of this. Its easy to discover as the pad on that rotor wears very fast.
The ABS action does always give an erratic stopping experience and there are different systems exist used. They are not the same exactly. This is a light vehicle as well.

Condition of brakes makes a difference under a locking ABS activated stress.
