Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
have replaced all pads, calipers and rotors - all around the car
also replaced the brake hose on the driver's side
also replace the front wheel bearings,
the grinding noise still happens
also note the amber ABS light is continuously on -
what is the most likely cause of the grinding?

I am not sure where the ABS wheel speed sensor is on your car but if the light is on and you hear a grinding sound, if the sound is coming from one particular wheel check the ABS wheel speed sensor is not contacting the "tone wheel" . If the noise is that obvious, jack up the car and properly support the Jeep spin the wheel t see if you can locate the offending wheel take of that wheel and closely re-examine all the wheel and braking components. Autozone have some popular workshop manuals for free on line once you register (for free) on their website .There is a company that independent auto repair shops "buy" their information from that offer a very reasonable service to do it yourselvers. You get a one year subscription to year make and model specific repair procedures, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... great quality information same as the professionals have ,much better than generic workshop manuals from parts stores, much cheaper than the factory manual. or try and get an online repair manual subscription.
