Powerful radio jets are an important ingredient in galaxy evolution. I will briefly review the results of our simulations of jet feedback interacting with a turbulent gas disk in the ISM. To further constrain the physics of synchrotron emission from jets and hence place limits on our models from observations, we have introduced a new hybrid scheme that follows the spectral and spatial evolution of non-thermal relativistic electrons in the jet, duly accounting for cooling losses due to synchrotron and inverse-compton with CMB as well as diffusive shock acceleration at strong shocks. I will briefly review the theory and current results of this endeavour.
