Rotors question

i need new rotors.. im planning on buying some drilled and slotted rotors from a company on ebay. Some of the info i need is if my truck is 2 or 4 wheel abs... how do you know? and also what part of the VIN says the production year of the vehicle...

does anybody has any suggestions to brand for rotors if i dont buy the ebay ones? thanks

I just put on Powerslot rotors with Hawk pads that I got from Jusnes and I noticed a huge difference over stock. The most noticable improvement is there is no fade at all. Crazy stopping power compared to stock.

im worried about the slotted rotors though.. i have had a pebble or something get caught between the pad and rotor on a stock rotor and mess it up.. it just looks like slotted ones are asking for it..
