Removing front brake rotors.

How do I remove the front brake rotors on my 03' F350? Do I have to remove the whole hub or can just the rotor be removed? If anyone has pictures or a diagram they could share that would be great.

What you need to do is, jack up the truck put it on jack stands. Remove the tire, then remove the caliper and caliper mount. Then the rotor will slide off the lugs.

I know the steps but when I get to the rotor, it does not slide off and I can't see any set-up for a puller and I have put a bar to it but it does not budge.

I've smacked the hell out of them and not budging. I guess I'll have to come up with some way of pulling them off. At this point I could not even tell if they would come off with out removing the hubs.

Havn't put any WD-40 on them but I'll give it a squirt when I try to remove them this Sat.
