Yeah they have to pins that hold them in. Just take a hammer and a wide tipped flathead screwdriver and knock them out. once you take them out, you can just slide the caliper off. once you get calipers off and old pads off, take a C clamp and compress the Caliper back into place. Then place in new brake pads, place on truck, align with pin holes and reinsert pins just using a happer lightly tapping them in.

I dont know the correct name for that type of pin, but i will try and find pics

Sources:

I had a 94 Ranger and changed the front brakes three times in the span I had it. Its super man.

Myke, its not the same. Newer style Rangers have caliper bolts, older style ones use the pins

I didnt think about this, I am just going by my experience with my 94' 2WD Reg cab 2.3L Ranger.

Im assuming since he said "pins" and not bolts, that it is the same thing

I always call them slider pins.

Quick Google search yields this image from ExplorerForum.

ding ding...winner!

both my 85 and 87 had those slide pins.....makes it really easy to change brakes

my 96 has the bolts....still easy but takes a few extra tools other than a hammer, c-clamp and screwdriver
