What is the Disk Brake Rotor On The Front Axles For?

I see on Rock Bouncers and Off Road trucks, what looks like a disc brake rotor in front and in back of the axle. What is the reason for these and how do they benefit? I have a pic, but it is on my computer and I could not find where to upload it.

I am a bit new to offroad, so I would appreciate the help.

Pinion brake. Big axles like rockwells have them.
