2008 Ram 4500 Brakes and Rotors

Time for new brakes and rotors on the truck (little over 60,000 miles).
Bad warp or ridge on one or both front rotors and am looking to see if any of you have replaced your 4500/5500 brakes/rotors with other than the OEM version.

I assume you do NOT have to remove the axle nut or any axle seal(s) when doing the front rotors/brakes for these trucks ... am I correct?

RockAuto has the Dodge OEM rotors at about $210 where as the dealership has them at $271 front/$230 something for rears (that's for each rotor folks!).

Any thoughts on Raybestos or other brands.

Was looking at Frozen Rotors Cryo (maybe the slotted ones), but they are in the same ballpark as the OEM from dealership cost wise but apparently you can't get a better rotor then what these guys make.

Fronts are what I'm doing first (the easy ones). The rears will be for later (big job needing the axle to be pulled and new axle seal).

Any info on the components and tips on changing out the brakes/rotors would be greatly appreciated.
