Question about Toyota Land Cruiser
conventional wisdom says that these are NOT something you can do at home.
you cannot use a pullers, as the centre of the pullers can only go against the driveshaft, and the pressure will damage the CV joint.
the bearing and rotor assembly are press fitted into place, and usually need to be removed from the rear with a hydraulic press unit.
a slide hammer is either not heavy enough, or the sudden impact from a heavy slide hammer is likely to damage the rotor
the truck (or at least the bottom of the strut) needs to be taken to a workshop equipped with a hydraulic press.
this is the recomendation from the land cruiser owners club.
if there was an easier way to do this job, those guys would have found it.
sorry i cannot be more help, but the owners club would have found another way if they thought it was safe and not likely to cause damage.

By the outer 6 nuts, I assume you mean the lug nuts for the wheel? Have you taken the brake caliper off? With the wheel off and the caliper off, the rotor can come off. You can see that in the exploded view below. If it's stuck, hit it or pry it. You can pry between the rotor and the caliper bracket. Take a look at what I had to do yesterday to get one off that was rusted on. I finally got it loose when I pounded the chisel between the rotor and the steering knuckle.
