Default chanee rotors and pads

I took my truck in for a tire rotation and they told me I need front rotors and pads their price 250. how hard is it to take off the rotors? my haze book says pull em off so - so its that simple? I changed pads before.

Unbolt caliper and bracket, slide old rotor off and slide new one on. Grab a can of brake cleaner, and clean the oil off of them before reinstalling.

I know on the earlier rangers like pre 98 you gotta take the front wheel bearings apart to get the rotors off. the 4x4s require a special axle nut socket.
