Question about 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Check brake fluid level if you haven't already. Also, there is a silicon based break lubricant that you can buy that should be applied to the slide on the caliper. If there is corrosion on the slide it will cause the break to stick. Full out lock up indicates a serious problem with the caliper, especially if only the front tire locks up, consider rebuilding the caliper (if thats the probem) or replacing it. if you replace it, bring in your old one and the parts store should give you a "core charge" credit for the old one...lowers the cost of the new one since you don't have to pay for another core charge
hope this helps and gives you a starting point on what to look for.
oh, also if it lock up only when you push on the break pedal it could be you proportioning valve, malfunctioning..
