Grinding is not good. Did you bed the pads to the rotors? http://www.tirerack.com/brakes/tech/techpage.jsp?techid=85....But I think you might have another issue. Have a local mechanic diagnose it for you.

I was searching around on the Jeep forums and apparently there is a cable to the transfer case that rubs on the drive line. The thread states that if you look under the driver side door you can see a shiny wear spot where the it rubs against the front drive shaft: Check it out... It might be the noise your hearing: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f310/grinding-sound-when-braking-1294361/
