Burning smell when on the skinny pedal hard????

2012 JKUR lifted 37's skids, auto, stock 4:10. When I get on the gas all the way I smell a burning smell almost like a clutch. This happens when it's hot or cold. Any ideas in what it could be? I thought for a minute it was my new skids "burning" the paint but it only does while floored, like a hard take off or to pass. That's the only time I smell it. Any ideas??

I bet your cats are just short of glowing by the time you get out of it, any road grime or crap is going to be burning off of them.

Been mudding lately?
Mines does that after some mud gets burned on them. I have a nice protective clay layer burned on my cats.

You smell that?

Just got done changing Passenger side brake caliper on mine, For about a week I would get a faint smell that I thought was my clutch. Then driving down the road the other day I saw smoke on front right side, Guy in lane next to me said my brake was burning, Had to cross three lanes and when I went to slow down, My brake started pulling. Check it .
