How to remove front rotors on 05 jeep liberty

remove the caliper by removing 2 bolts on the inner side of the caliper (15/16 size I think) then pull the caliper off the rotor. dont remove the brake hose or let the caliper hang by the hose (set it on a bucket or use a piece of wire to tie it to an A arm) then the rotor will pull off easily.

2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.0L front passenger brake sticks

First you must look closely at the caliper and determine if it is sticking on the slide or is the piston sticking. If it is the piston you would have to rebuild the caliper or replace the caliper. If it is the slides, you need to sand and clean all the slide contacts and lube the slide with lithium grease or never seize grease. Then you can reinstall the caliper and you will be fine. Also when checking if the piston is sticking try loosening the line and see if it retracts, if it does you may have a bad flex hose going to the caliper holding pressure on the caliper.
