Do stock front rotors come off the hub or are they cast together?

I'm thinking about changing out my front rotors since I'm putting in manual hubs. Do the rotors and the hub come apart or are they one cast piece? All the rotors I have looked at online show just the rotor. If they come apart do I knock the studs out or what? Thanks.

Pop your calipers and the rotors slide right off

Mine is 2wd so maybe that is why the hub is all one piece with rotor

ok that answers that question.

Try this one!

Why is it some OBS trucks have a 1/2" bolt to hold the caliper on and others have that cheap POS pin?

Not that I've seen that many. But all three of mine are pretty much the same as far as design.
