Dust covers on Hubs

Anyone know whats up with the dust covers that go over the front hubs (Brakes) I pulled my wheels and there was none. I went to get some at a local parts store (3 of them) no listing for the dust covers. Did jeep run any? I have new wheels and I plan not to run any center caps, so Dust covers are needed to keep out the dirt/dust etc.

You mean the shields on the backside of the rotars....

Previous owner probably removed them. I removed mine cause I got sick of pebbles & stones & sticks getting stuck in there after a day of wheeling.

I assume you are talking about the dust cover that goes over the wheel bearings correct. If so you can't find them because a jeep doesn't use them. The bearing is a sealed assembly of it's own and does not need a dust shield.
