Random Caliper Grab.. Help!

Okay, So i've been getting really frustrated with this whole thing. I have a 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited with the 5.2L V8 and it drives fine up until say 10 or 20 miles you've driven. Once you've done that, there begins to be a random grab coming fron the front right. I've replaced almost everything over there, and i'm completely stumped now as to whats causing it. Brand new caliper, rotor, and rubber brake hose that goes to the caliper. Still does it. And thoughts or suggestions on the issue would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Obvious question, but have you tried disabling the ABS just to see if that's the issue?

Maybe check this?? Mine was doing the same thing. After driving awhile i would start to get a thumping sound from the right front brake. If i applied the brakes it would stop, then soon return.

The ABS does not work on the car, the parts all fell off long ago

A rotor can be destroyed in a short period of time if the lugs aren't torqued down evenly. The heat build up will warp the rotor when they aren't tightened evenly.
