How hard of a job is the replacement? I haven't looked at my service manual yet to see?
First, your rotor is held in place by the studs...you will need to remove the hub (unit) bearing and press the studs out of the old assembly (old hub/old rotor), then press them into the new assesmbly (old hub/new rotor)...only the later rams had floating rotors.
You will not simply pull them off the studs on a 99...they will need pressed.
My dad used rotors from Advance Auto without any problems...
