This makes the most complete sense.

Re: ****ed up my brakes?

Yeah, that should be the dust shield - it's like putty in your hands You should be able to "mold" that back into proper shape or come close.

As always - use a proper jack on these Jeeps - safety first

Re: ****ed up my brakes?

Just the dust shield like everyone said. If I were you I would take the rotor into a shop/auto parts store and have it turned to make sure it isnt bent/out of balance as that could cause some serious issues. You can try to bend that plate back but dont worry if it breaks off, they were rusted out on my dad's truck and he just broke it off, hasn't had any problems. Its always possible that something could get in there since that would cover the area inside the rotor where the parking brake is.

Re: ****ed up my brakes?

Using caution while jacking is a good life rule in general.

I had a jack stand up but, it was on my driveway which has a slight incline and the weight of the car just crushed my original jack.. which is now cracked..

On another note, what kind of rotors should I get for a replacment of the back ones?(Should I replace the back two so they are "even") What kind/brand in a relative cheap-er spectrum of products. And how easy is it to install, or is this something I should let a proper auto shop do? Thanks again guys for the help!

HAHA...I wasn't referring to jacking up your Jeep...hahahhaah.

I've had great luck with Napa for good quality, reasonably priced parts. I'm a big fan of EBC brakes personally, and the prices aren't that bad. Summit Racing is a good online source too.

Replacing rotors is basically like changing brake pads (just one additional step). After safely getting the wheel in the air, remove the wheel. Then remove the brake caliper and the rotor will come right off. I would just replace the one that you dropped the vehicle on and buy if from your local auto store.

Ah ok, it's something I've never done.. sounds pretty easy.. I'll check out Napa tomorrow..

I should only replace one then?(the one that met the asphalt?)

I won't try to say that what I would do is the correct the only correct thing to do. I can only tell you what I would do. Unless you have a specific reason that you need to replace the other rotor (such as it being warped or gouged), I would only replace the one that kissed the pavement.

Re: ****ed up my brakes?

With brakes its normal that you replace both sides at the same time. In that way you will have even wear and even brake application. If the disc is still quite new, you could just replace the one which hit the ground.
Also depending on the state of the brake pads, you could better replace them at the same time. They normally have some grooves after some time use and could unevenly start wearing the new discs.
