The rotor will wobble when the caliper is removed if the rotor isn't seated. Older jeeps don't need to have the rotor seated so it will slide off when the caliper is removed.

Jack the front end up and place it on stands. Don't trust a jack. Take the wheel off. Disconnect the hydraulic brake line and plug it. take the 2 caliper bolts off. Spread the caliper by inserting a screwdriver between the rotor and the caliper piston. Slide the caliper off pull out the pads. Put new pads in with the new rotors.
