5 pound sledgehammer, two of them...I'm not kidding. One on each side and ring that disc. It will come off unless your forgetting something attached holding it on. If this is a rear or front wheel drive disc check for a bearing adjuster nut behind a cover with a castellated nut and cotter pin.

sometimes what i do if i run into a stubborn drum or rotor is undo everything so it is ready to come off and then put the wheel back on with a couple lugnuts so you can grab the wheel to get more leverage to pull it off the hub.

Don't forget that beating on the rotor also puts stress on the side gear and axle bearing. What has happened is the rotor hat has most likely frozen (corrosion) against the axle flange. An extended period of heat (propane bottle) should loosen the rotor. Spray penetrant around where it rides the axle flange and wheel studs. A few occaisional love taps and she should pop off.

It is usually a buildup of crud around the axle flange/wheel studs. Look real closely.
