I'm having the same problem. My 2000 WJ is pushing 95,000 miles. I bought it with 20,000 miles in 2001 so i'm unaware of an issue before. The first time i had the warpage, i had the rotors turned and replaced the pads (organic). It worked well for a while. When the problem returned i replaced the rotors and pads (ceramic) which lasted longer. I have now been driving the vehicle in Italy for the past 2 years. The problem has been gradually getting worse within the last few months. After some research online. I've come to the conclusion of replacing my Teves calipers with Akebono calipers which Jeep upgraded future WJ's with in 2002. Along with a caliper replacement you have to replace the rotors as well. After some more research regarding slotted, drilled, vented rotors, i'm just going to go with stock replacements. Right now i'm trying to figure out if there's a better caliper/rotor combination before i commit to this order. As it is, it's around $500. Also, like the previous poster. Make sure you don't overtighten your lug-nuts. I don't know if that contributed to my problems. I've always used a hand 4-way type lug nut wrench. I recently read that they should only be tightened from 85-100 lbs/ft. I'm going to place the order for the parts which should arrive in about a week.

put the back of car on jack stands and secure the front tires so it does not roll and then remove the bolts off the back of the caliper there is normally two one at top and one at bottom and spray it with some kind of oil for rust and make sure you have the right size socket before you try to loosen them and once caliper is off and the old pads removed take one of the old pads and squeeze the piston on the caliper back in by using a "C" clamp and also remove some of the brake fluid from the master cylinder before you do this put the new ones back on and check the brake fluid and make sure it is full and then pump the brakes to make sure you have a good pedal also put some "No Squeak" brake stop on the back of the pads so they don't squeak they will have that where you buy the pads from

Replace rear rotors on 04 liberty.
Remove tire & wheel
Remove brake caliper, tie up out of way.
Back off e-brake shoe adjustment.
Remove factory spring clip from lugs (2places)
This is the crude part....
After attempting to pull off disc/drum with puller....I got pretty sick of it. Understand this is in the Northeast with lots of salt on the roads in winter. Needless to say there is a ridge of rust around the inside edge of the e-brake surface. Any more pressure and I was afraid of damage to the e-brake shoe asembly. I then took a small grinder with a cut off wheel and cut the disc thru (used space where caliper usually sits). Also cut nearly through the face between 2 lugs. You can't quite get thru the back corner at the disc. Since the material is cast iron it will crack when you drive a wedge in the slot cut in the disc. This opens the housing around the shoes and it slides off easily. The cutting operation took less than10 mins, alot less than the puller with hammer assist!
I know this is a bit "unorthodox" to say the least, however the object is to remove the old junk disc safely and as quickly as possible, without harming the e-brake parts inside.
Install new parts in reverse order, new pads go in easy after squeezing the caliper piston back with a c clamp as is the normal procedure.

Hole with notches is likely a torks screw Looks like an allan key hole with extra splines? they make a bit that fits in there. It's on the flat surface where the wheel mounts right?

Why would you put tape on the rotors when doing brakes? Once calipers are removed, rotors come right off. Never saw any seal on rotors and don't know what a seal would do there....Unless it's put there on assembly line to keep rotor from falling off? I wouldn't be concerned.
