Unless something radical has changed with the rotors on our trucks, don't they go on just one way?

it depends on the brand. i believe the powerslots go like matt showed and the baer rotors are the opposite.

I would put them on like Matt, my cross drilled ones are facing the same direction on either vehicle I have them on. Brembo's have a marking on the rotor with a directional arrow.

OK, so our rotors are of a two piece design which requires the rotor to be bolted to the hub and can be bolted with the slots going either direction, Right? Just asking since I haven't had to do the brakes yet.

The stock rotors are not slotted. The ones this guy is installing are aftermarket rotors.

So help me here understand. If you have rotors that have a hub and they are one piece, how can they be installed any other way than how they are cast? Unless, they are a two piece design with the rotor being able to be mounted with the slots going in either direction?

They ship in pairs...1 right hand and 1 left hand...Each rotor is cut different like directional tires, so it is very possible to install them backwards.

The rotors are a one piece design and DO NOT include the hub. Once you take the caliper off the rotor falls off. The slotted and drilled rotors ARE directional, but can be put on on either side of the truck. You need to make sure that they are installed on the correct side or they might crack due to heat build up. If the rotors you received did not have instructions, check the rotors themselves, they should be stamped as to which side they go on. If you cannot find anything, then call the manufacturer. I can tell you that the Power Slots are installed as shown in Matt's picture.

like i said before, the direction of the slots depends on the brand of the rotors. it does matter which way the are installed. check with the manufacturer on how to properly install them.

u wont feel a difference one just slotted rotors. its mainly for better cooling. u might get a little more bite with them, but not much. high quality ceramic pads is where you feel a stopping difference.
