Default Remove front rotor 1996 Ram 1500

Shouldn't the rotor come off by just removing the calipers and bracket that holds the calipers? I was lead to believe I had to remove the cotter pin and that big wheel bearing/rotor nut. If I wanted to pack the wheel bearings I can see removing that big nut and pin, but i don't think I have to for just the rotor?

4x4 right? Rotor is probably just rusted to the hub. Hit it with a hammer a couple times.

It should come right off. If you get two big hammers and hit it at the 3'oclock and 9'oclock positions at the same time, turn the rotor a bit then do it again, it should come loose after just a few hits.
