They are pressed on, I have had to always take in to a shop in order to replace the rotor, some shops cant even get them off. Huge pain. I have always like this truck and have over 208k miles on it, but the brakes and the coolant system have always needed attention. GM underbraked this truck. .

You have to remove the hub bearing assy on these models to get the rotor off. The rotor comes off from the back of the hub. The design makes it physically impossible to do it any other way. Look for photos of the hub assy. and the rotor and you will see what I mean.

You didn't specify brake rotor or ignition rotor. If it's the brake rotor, remove the front wheel, remove the brake caliper, remove the bearing dust cap, remove the cotter pin, and then remove the castle nut, this will free up the rotor to be removed from the spindle. While it's off you may as well replace the wheel bearings. If its the ignotion rotor you simply remove the distributor cap, and then two screws hold the rotor on.

First block the tires before the vehicle is jacked up. Second remove the tire and then remove the caliber and it take a three quarters inch socket to remove the bolt from center of rotor loosen the bolt remove the rotor and put the new one on.
