Once you remove the pads & caliber the rotor is easy to remove. After you have the caliper off there may be 1 or 2 screws that need to come off then tap the rotor with a rubber mallet or a puller to get it off because it may be rusted.

Once the caliper is off then the rotor should come off. If not take a hammer and beat on the rotor. Then it will either come off or crack and come off. If that does not get it off you would have to heat it with a torch.

Remove the tire and wheel. Remove the brake assembly. The old rotor will slide off. You might need to tap on the rotor with a hammer to get it to slide off. Reverse the process to install the new rotor.

The rotor will wobble when the caliper is removed if the rotor isn't seated. Older jeeps don't need to have the rotor seated so it will slide off when the caliper is removed.

the threaded holes are for removing the rotor. If the rotor does not come off with ease, a bolt of the same size can be inserted in and the rotor "pryed" off, using a socket set.

Take tires, rotors and brake pads off. Then get a piece of thick wood and hold it on the rotor and beat it with a hammer to loosin the rotor. Then it will almost fall off in your hand.

No, the rotor will come off with out the hub. After the brake caliper is off the only thing holding the rotor is rust. Hit between the studs with a hammer and it will come off.
