frozen rotors

went to do the brakes in my 03 1500 today and the first wheel i went to do was the drivers side front, pulled the wheel off, took off the caliber bracket and tried to get the rotor off and have had zero luck, spent about 2hrs tryin to get it off and that baby is frozen on there...anybody have any suggestions cuz a 4lb hammer isn't budging it and i'm ready to blow a fuse lol...thanks

soak what you can with penetrating spray, let it sit for at least 30 mins... find a 3-5lb rubber mallet and go to work.
seeing your in the N.East, and it is on an 03, i am willing to bet it probably rusted up a little.

thanks for the suggestions what ended up doing the trick was someone told me to take a torch to the rotor all around the lugs and inbetween them (not the hub) and get it as hot as i possibly could then whale on it inbetween each stud and sure enough went all the way around then a few love taps on the back side and off she came
