Is it the full time 4x4 with the 1 1/8 outer nut?

Read if your truck has a Dana 60 front axle:

Pull the hub/Drive flange: Remove the 2 9/16ths" spindle nut, there may be a locking ring behind it, slide it out, remove the other 2 9/16ths" spindle nut. Remove the bearing.

Pull the rotor off, be careful not to drag the grease seal over the spindle threads if you plan on keeping it in there.

Good time to repack your bearings, too.

it is my cousins truck and we were told that after everything is removed that the rotor should just need to be pulled off .... with a puller of course... it is a 3/4 all time 4x4...

did you take off the bearing retain nut? just spin it to see where it is being held from shouldn't be that hard to get off unless seized onto the spindle then you need a die grinder
