Just finished making a tutorial on changing the pads, rotors, and bleeding brakes on my 2012 2-door Wrangler. Hope y'all find this useful!

couple of tips for the compressing the piston. use the old brake pad and put it against the piston then use the c-clamp to compress the piston. I found this method easier.

Also for those of us in the rust belt. the parking brake pads will create a lip on the rear disks and make it almost impossible to get them off. to make it easier there is an adjustment screw for the parking brake behind the rubber dust cap:

Really not sure why you installed one brake pad with caliper attached and then removed the caliper to install the other caliper. Just take off the caliper and install both pads at the same time, especially since you're replacing the rotor anyway. The only reason to leave the bottom bolts on the caliper and let it swing is if you were only replacing the pads. Am I missing something here?
