"Should" be a 21mm bolt holding the caliper onto the knuckle. I can double check tomorrow if I have a 4th gen up in the air.

Jeep did change to a 11mm alllen bolt for 2016 though.

You'll need a very hard to find metric 11mm hex head socket to remove the calipers on all 2011 and up Grand Cherokees.
