SOURCE: I'm replacing my rear rotors on a 2005 grand

check with a parts house and see if both vehicles have the same part # for rear rotors. If they do you will be fine. Don't try "adapting" stuff in brake systems...It's difficult and dangerous. Rotors even new are not that expensive!

SOURCE: how to check/change fuse on '05 jeep grand

You can check fuses easily by using a test light. Turn the key on and probe the small openings at the fuse ends. You should have power at all except one that is for the headlights. You can easily remove any faulty ones by grabbing it with a small pair of needle nose pliers. they pull right out and easily push back in place.

SOURCE: Would a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo engine fit...

The actual engine assembly will fit but you need to determine if there were any changes made between the two years in the computer or wiring harness. Also make sure that both engines have the exact same transmissions as sometimes the bellhousing patterns are different.
I'm pretty sure yours is a direct replacement though, providing both engines are the same displacement..Most scrapyards have an interchange manual that may help you. (they have to know these's their business)

2000 jeep grand cherokee' recently had the head replaced, is it normal to use a little coolant each month.

A sealed system should be that. Either the coolant is overheating and steaming out through the reservoir, or more worryingly, the new head gasket is leaking. That is assuming they used a new gasket and sealant.

I have a 05 jeep grand Cherokee Laredo 4*4 when im taking off I get a clucking noise coming from the middle of the car

Check the universal joints on the drive shaft. You can do this by sliding under the car and move the drive shaft by hand. If there is a lot of movement before it can no longer be turned then it's likely the jionts need replacing.

Should i use synthetic oil on my 05 Grand Cherokee Laredo instead of conventional?

I would only use synthetic oil if there is a sticker on the engine compartment or the manual says that it is recommended.

I would use conventional oil unless otherwise specified.

Just have it changed every 3,000 mi. along with the filter and lube.
