Brake pulsations due to warped front brake rotors on Jeep Wrangler

Due to warped front brake rotors or variations in the thickness of the rotors, brake pulsations may develop. The best method to reduce pulsations is to use an "On the Car" brake lathe (as long as the rotors are suitable for turning). "On the Car" equipment can correct variations (or "runout") in the rotor surfaces because it also corrects variations in other components (e.g. the hub).

I can feel a pulsation in the brake pedal when braking lightly. I assume one or more brake rotors are warped.
