WTF 95 Pick UP rotor replacement

OK, I consider myself extremely mechanically inclined but I found something that just eludes me. On my 95 P/u I removed the wheel looked at it a bit then removed the "manual lock hub cap" lokked at it some more scratched my head then removed the bolts holding the locking hub body on the other part attached to the rotor. Then pry'd and pry'd and could not get the rotor off I thought WTF. So I called my local 4X4 shop they said use a bigger hammer so I grabbed mt 3lb. sledge and tried again. Won't budge I was told not to remove the center bolt that appears to hold the cv and bearings in place. How the hell do you get the rotor off? It is attached to the hub body which is then attached to the silver hub locking mechanism. hmmmm any ideas?

I like this :) My only suggestion to add is I am almost 100% positive the rotor is a slip on unit. They have been making Toyota Pickups like that since the dawn of time so I don't see any reason why yours would be different.
I would suggest some WD-40 and a BFH, should come right off
Nope, wrong. I've never changed rotors on a tacoma, but I've put them on my fj40s, 82,84,87,89,93, etc toyota pickups. The rotor does NOT slide over the studs on a 95, unless it happens to be a 95.5 tacoma.The rotors actually attach to the back side of the hub assembly. I just put rotors on my 89 last year. You do need to remove the hub assembly, then pry back the locking tabs on the spindle nut. Remove the two spindle nuts, and pull the whole hub/rotor assembly off with the outer wheel bearing. The hub will seperate from the rotor with a little banging and prying after you remove the mounting bolts from the backside of the hub.Clean all the old rust off the hub mating surface, put the hub into the new rotor and tap the two together with a large rubber mallet. Make sure the holes for the bolts line up. Once the hub is bolted to the new rotor, just repack the wheel bearings, and put it all back together.
If you spin the hub assembly around while tapping it with a hammer it will eventually come free.
