Default alternative braking

I have an 08 xlt 2wd and the brake rotors are warped pretty bad. I was wondering if any of you guys and gals on here knew of any alternatives to turning or replacing them I.E. Conversions or whatever?? I didn't know that they were hub assemblies (never had the truck apart) until I went to price rotors. 120 bucks each is just a bit hard to find these days.

Also, you should also see why the rotors are warped, might have to replace something down the road

Jy? I'm not familiar with some of the abbreviations. I first noticed it after I rotated the tires for the second time. And nothing has been replaced. Just oil changes and tire rotations. I have never had this problem on any of my vehicles until I bought new vehicles.
