1999 Tj Brake rotors 2 sizes?

So I need new brakes and was looking at JC Witney/Amazon and you can get badass rotors/pads for a great price. I tried to order but it seems there is 2 rotors that were used that year. I emailed the brake company and they said you need to measure the "top of the hat".... so if you have a 99 TJ and order online rotor beware! Measure everything first.

Chrysler changed the wheel bearing assembly in the 1999 model year which is why the rotors are different.

I replaced mine a year or so ago, autozone had no clue and guess what I ended up with....... the wrong ones. Think I had to get the ones for a 2000 TJ

As I recall some are cast and some are machined to add to confusion.. I can recall which work with the hub but if ya get the wrong one.. the jeep will not move...
