Default 1999 2WD front brake rotor & hub ?

On the 1999 Dodge Ram 2500 V10 2wd are the front brake rotors separate from the hub, or, are they all one piece?? The Dodge shop manual talks like they are separate and you can just pull the rotor off the hub. But when I look up new rotors at O'Reilly's, Autozone, etc. they seem to show a one piece rotor/hub assembly. Can anyone please clear this up for me - thanks.

No, it's the neighbor's truck so it's his expense. The problem is that it sounds like a hassle if it's all one piece. His brakes are totally gone and the rotors have to be replaced (we think). Is it hard to get the rotor/hubs off? Will we have to install new tapered roller bearings in the new hub/rotors? I have the shop manual on PDF and it's not clear at all between the difference and mounting of the rotors on the 2WD and the 4WD. So, I guess the bottom line is: how hard is it to replace the front rotors and pads on the 2500 2WD?

It's not hard at all . Knock off the dust cover , remove the cotter pin , unthread the nut , remove the the outer bearing assembly , remove the rotor . Make sure you clean and repack the wheel bearings and hubs correctly (even if their new bearings your installing) . Install a new grease seal , install the assembly and outer bearing and nut . Torque the bearing nut to the correct value , install a new cotter pin , then install the dust cover . DONE . It's a little more work than replacing knock off rotors . Not hard at all .

Sorry to be a pest but more questions: How are the bearings held in? Do they just slip right out or do you have to drive them out?

Since you say the nut is torqued on, does that mean that the bearings aren't the old-fashioned tapered bearings where you tightened the hub (axle) nut just tight enough to take up any slop in the bearing? The manual seems to call for 180 ft. lbs. of torque on the hub nut.

180 ft lbs of torque sounds like the torque for a axle nut on a 4x4 setup . Definitely not that tight . Yes the bearings are tapered and you can use that method of zero tolerance .
