They're 32 bucks at my napa. If your hubs are still good, you don't need the 160 dollar rotor/hub assembly.

Beauty is in the eye of the jeepowner.

Drive/press the old lug studs out and separate the rotor from the wheelbearing hubs. Drive the old lug studs back through the new rotor and wheelbearing hubs and call it good.
