Brakes and Rotor update

So i worked and worked on my rotor to try to get it off.. i even started banging it with a hammer(when i decided to just get a new rotor) prying it with a long metal bar.. all kinds of crap and i didnt budge.
I asked a friend to come over and help and his friend said to take the hub off(not sure exactly). so we started taking the little screws out of the front. when we got them off we popped off some LONG rod thing(im guessing its the axle or drive shaft) came out with alot of oil/lube of some sort. i pulled real hard on my pry bar and the rotor popped off. we put the rod back in and put the screws back in, and are just waiting till the stores open up tomorrow to put the new rotor and new brakes back on..
so what is this lube stuff that leaked all over my drive way and how do i replace it.. is my truck non driveable till its replaced?

Okay, what are we working on?

Is this a SINGLE REAR WHEEL or DUAL REAR WHEEL?
(This is a VERY important quesion)

By what you are describing, I wouldn't want to be anywhere near your truck, should you choose to DRIVE it.

Sounds to me like you are working on the rear axle. The long rod you removed is the axle and the fluid that came out would be the gear oil from the rear diff. I believe the diff takes 75w140 but someone will correct me if I am wrong or you can look in your owners manual. There is a plug on the front side of the rear axle that you remove to check and top up the fluid.

If it were my truck I wouldnt drive it until I made sure the rear axle fluid was topped up.
