If your not good at fixing brakes then you better take it to a repair shop. Or else we may be reading about you in the news.

Front or rear? Disc or Drum? Maybe you got lucky and just ruptured a hose. Take a look; you can observe a lot that way.

A new caliper seal will probably take care of it.

He is not familiar with brake repairs and replacing a caliper is easier than overhauling a caliper. And then he needs to know how to bleed brakes. Maybe he will post back with what he thinks he can do. Hopefully he has some good friends willing to help and train him. If not he should have a repair shop do it so he does not kill someone when he tries to stop the jeep on his first ride after attempting the repair.

Learning is good, faking it on something critical is dangerous. I trained a lot of people for less.

Looks to me like the inner brake pad was metal to metal, and ground the rotor down to the point that the caliper spit the piston out. That would cause a hell of a grinding noise and I can't imagine you'd drive it to that point. But, I have seen it happen..

Even if it was a rock it would be wise to inspect your brakes before a failure prevents you from stopping and you kill yourself in a crash.
