wasn't that bad. just had to use some elbow grease, and you might have to really beat on the old rotor with a rubber mallet, but it all comes off. i ordered my new caliper. but the bracket doesn't come off the original one, so i have to order a new bracket as well. so for the new caliper w/ bracket comes to about 100$. its horrible. but its worth it. i wish i could show you guys the brake pad b/c of the stuck caliper. its probably around 1/4 inch thick.

Let me put it this way. If the bracket doesn't come off, but you have to order a caliper and bracket separately, than the bracket does come off

lol, my buddy did the dumbest idea ever with removing a dent in his door, u could always try this with ur lude. (I DO NOT SUGGEST THIS ALSO I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE IF YOUR STUPID ENOUGH TO TRY IT). take a drill and drill it in somewhere into the rotor, the screw in a bolt nut and a hook, next link together a heavy duty chain to the bolt combination, and your friends car. then tell your friend to drive off, and if your car doesnt fall of jack stands or rip the whole axle off, the rotor will be dragging behind your buddies car. lol
