I am not sure what you need to do, but to get the rotor off do the following:
1) Jack up Jeep, remove front wheel.
2) Unbolt the caliper from the back, wiggle it to loosen up the brakes (you may have to squeeze the calipers in with large channel lock pliers or pry the brake pads with a screwdriver.
3) Remove the cotter pin and star nut from the axle.
4) Remove the bolts that hold the dust shield to the back of the rotor and pull the rotor off.

I hope this is what you needed to know, and that I remembered it correctly.

Hey, I see you're in a bind, just don't rush this bit.. make sure to bleed the brakes properly once you're done.. air bubbles will make your new brakes as effective as bars of soap.


And soak those bleeders in wd40 too!!!! if they break you need to get new calipers. (you could theoretically drill them out. but i think i bought two loaded calipers (with pads) for 80 bucks + a core charge. it might have been less.
