1) Be certain the transmission is in neutral.
2) Be certain to mark where the driveshaft is on the yoke flange so it can be put back in the same location.
3) Cut the clamp on the dust boot and pull the boot back
4) Be sure again to mark where the drive shaft is to get it back in the exact location.
5) Remove the 4 bolts (11mm) on the driveshaft on the yoke end.

Sometimes there are two screws on the inner face of the rotor. These are typically removed with an impact-screw-driver. I use a big screw driver and a hammer but have had to drill them out at times. Wouldn't be a problem to leave them out but just helps to reduce any vibration.
The inner circle on the Router where it contact the Hub, or Wheel-bearing portion gets corroded - use a lubricant at this location and clean with sand-paper afterwards and perhaps some high-temperature brake grease after on this location as well as the studs holding on the wheel.
Further, the pins that hold the caliper on - should be able to slide in and out freely - if not, remove them, sand them and apply the same grease.
Further , the portion that the caliper sits on have rails that should be cleaned with a file or something as they develop a groove and doesn't allow the caliper to travel properly causing uneven wear on your inner or outer pad and causing the rotors to warp prematurely as well. Apply same grease to this location as well.
Note; New rotors have a thin film of oil on them that should be removed with Brake-Cleaner or Gas. If not, this will ruin your pads immediately.
Get all the grease and oil off your rotors and do not handle with your hands - use a dry, clean rag.
This should get you going.
Oh, the rotor stuck on... Give it a couple good whacks with a hammer - but don't strike the surrounding metals as may shatter things. Oh, don't use the hammer method if you want to re-use the rotors. Inspect the backing plate which is the metal disk behind each rotor - sometimes these get out of place and will rub against the rotor making a noise.
My recommendation is always the best rotor and the soft, or fibre pads as it is easier to replace pads once a year than to replace the rotors - Rotors will last for 10 years this way.

there are two types, one will use a slide type joint rubber insul, and will have small bolts holding it to transfer case. the other type will have no bolts and pops in to transfer case, to remove this type you use a small pry bar and pop it out like a cv axle out of transmission, it uses a c clip to lock itself in, wedge pry between transfer case and joint and give a pull.
