Default 2014 Ram 1500 Needs Rotors

I have a 2014 Ram 1500 Tradesman Quad Cab. it has the 3.6 liter v6 in it I don't tow anything and drive mostly highway. It has 17000 miles and I already had to replace all 4 rotors as they were vibrating when slowing down. .it was cheaper to buy aftermarket Severe duty rotors and ceramic pads than to have the dealer turn them they won't cover them under warranty because I have 17k miles bought the truck in Feb 2014. Has anyone else had this problem? ??

Geez, that's unusual. I'm used to getting 60k miles on OEM brakes these days for daily drivers.

I had the same thing happen on a Grand Cherokee. The factory set was making the brake pedal pulsate within a year and they were replaced under warranty, when that set went out a few months later I replaced them with a good set of American made forged rotors. It was interesting how much more the forged rotors weighed.

The dealer had 55 gallon drums full of like new rotors removed from vehicles since they were replacing crap rotors with crap rotors.
