Severely Damaged Rotor

This is what remains of the brake caliper
This rotor was damaged by continuing to drive the truck well past when the brake pads had worn completely through.

In this photo you can see what remains of the outer portion of the brake rotor. The fins you see are usually sandwiched between the two rotor surfaces and serve as a cooling feature. 

A Close up view of the rotor, the thin metal between each fin is what remains of the outer portion of the rotor

Although difficult to see, this is a view of both the inner and outer surfaces of the rotor, as well as the fins between them.
