Brake Job - Unexpected

Hi All,
I know I read right here in good ole a.a.d.t, that when getting a brake job done on a Heavy Duty truck, go ahead and opt for new rotors because
"it doesn't cost that much more".
There is a definite disjoint ... and it could be on my part. However, here is the damage:
Brake job from local, friendly Dodge dealer: $150.00 per axle Rotors: $144.00 EACH.
Total cost without new rotors ... $300.00 plus TTL.
Total cost with new rotors ... $876.00 plus TTL
Now, I'm not debating whether or not it's worth it. I'm wondering if 1) I misunderstood or 2) the dealer is charging a bit too much. $576.00 hardly qualifies for the statement "it doesn't cost that much more".
Any thoughts?

Okay ... I can do that. Any suggestions of a reputable place I can take my truck that offers slotted rotors? All that comes to mind is 4 wheel parts ...
Thanks Craig C.

I called 4 Wheel Parts.
Slotted rotor - 134.00 each Pads - Free with rotors Labor - 100.00 per axle
Total - 736.00
Cheaper than the dealer and better rotors. Any comments about slotted rotors? Good ... ? Bad ... ? No real difference between them and Duralast rotors from Autozone?
Thanks Craig C.
