Front right brake locked up

It just happened out of the blue really I let the jeep sit for a few days since its my weekend toy now and I was driving and could smell the brakes burning, the jeep was turning hard like it had a bad alignment. Anyway I bought new pads rotor and calipers I didn't get a chance to look at it yet I just knew to be prepared for the worst when I take the wheel off. Anyone else have this problem? It's a 97 se

Yep!! Had the same thing happen couple months ago. Riding some dirt roads and started smelling it. Limped home (wasn't to far) and replaced pads and calipers on both sides. Rotors for mine did not get damaged luckily. Core charge for calipers was more than the purchase price. Hopefully your rotor is ok. You can always take it to get turned (if they can) and not replace it.

This started with my left side, I took everything apart and bought all new calibers ,brake lines , master cylinder and bigger pads. Now a few months later it's my right side and I guess I have a bad caliber again

My right side seized up last summer with dried up mud. I was able to drive it home from work and only had to replace the caliper and pads. Theres not much to be prepared for, my caliper bolts had anti-seize on them and came out with no problem. That could be the only issue you may have since you have all your parts...
