I just went to replace my hubs with my newly ordered hubs from ebay, I ordered the hubs for cast rotors because I have cast rotors. I put the new hub on one side and noticed when I put the rotor back on it was scraping that flimsy thin metal half circle thing. Not only that but the hub I took off was a hub meant for composite. I had changed the bearings before and the rotors at different times and never was I asked composite or cast for either of these. So I looked at my door and realized that the jeep I always referred to as as a 99 to autozone clerks was in fact made in July 98. I looked at autozone.com and saw that they sell a cast rotor replacement for composite rotors. Maybe thats what I have? Is it just luck that when I purchased hubs they gave me composite and when I purchased rotors they gave me the cast rotors made to composite specs? What the hell is going on? Should I just go buy some new cast rotors for my cast rotor hubs even though my jeep was made for composite?
Cast or composite rotors both function the same. Buy whatever type rotor or hub (or both) you need to make your repairs. The data tag on the firewall and your vehicle title have the correct model year designation for the vehicle, the date of manufacture seldom matters.
As noted, XJ D30 unit/bearing hubs, disk brake rotors, brake calipers, and axle shafts are interchangeable for all years 1990-2001.

Thanks about where the real date is, but my real question is, I now have two new cast spec hubs can I go buy some cast spec rotors and have it work even if my jeep originally came with composite rotors?
Hey sorry to bring up an old thread but I've run into a problem after swapping a '99 front axle into my '93 XJ, my old composite rotors don't fit but I don't want to go buy new ones because these have only 5000 miles on them and are the premium Raybestos slotted type... Is there any cheaper/easier solution besides changing the rotors or hubs?
