Did you just bleed that one wheel? If so, crack the bleed screw on one of the wheels on the opposite end of the jeep, and with the ignition in the on position, have someone press on the brake pedal until the light goes out. When it does, close the bleed screw.

Rebleed the entire brake system starting at the RR, then LR, then RF, then LF.
When you have a choice, buy American.
