    If you've never done it, you'd be wise to purchase the $10 Chilton or Haynes manual, they outline this procedure fairly well.
    Generally speaking it's something like this:
    Remove wheel, remove auto or manual hub, remove lock ring tang, use special 4wd socket avail at any auto store to remove lock ring (or rings if there's no tang), pull outer hub/rotor assembly off.
    Very generally speaking, there lots of little stuff here.

    Remove the locking hub cover and locate the lock ring that locks the hub into place. Remove the lock and the snap ring on the shaft. Slide the hub assembly out. Using a 4 wd socket (4 point for 1/2 ton or 6 point for 3/4, 1 ton) remove the first nut. Pull the locking washer out and then remove the next nut with the same socket. After removing the second nut, the hub and rotor should pull off. Do a search for installation

    K if its 4x4 and you need to replace the rotors, do as the others said to get the hub/rotor assembly off then you need to press the wheel studs out in order to separate the hub and the rotor. if you need more info i'll be glad to elabirate. just let me/ us know
