    The 2WD rotors are 1 piece, you must use 4WD rotors.

    <font color="green"> I like Derbinator's the best since he is the only one that makes the 1 peice machined spacers rather than the little pipe spacers. It just seems like a more solid method. They are a little more expensive than some though, $100 shipped. </font color>

    I concur with Shaggy......Derbinator's are what I have and they seem really stout.

    Though to be fair, I believe Misfit's brackets are also now available with the solid spacer. I'll let him chime in on that one directly.

    You know, I have run brackets with the little spacers for quite some time now with 0 problems, really don't think it's that big of a deal to have a solid spacer if that's your only consideration.
