    I'm replacing my front rotors and pads. I wasn't able to locate a good thread with detailed instructions. The 2wd seems a bit more difficult than the 4wd. They've got a great youtube video for the 4wd, but not 2wd. Anybody?

    SAS.. Need I say more.
    Rotors are so simple. There is no difference for the 2wd model.

    pick yourself up a haynes repair manual OP there is a detailed walkthrough with pics of how to do it. btw a 2wd rotor change is different then on a 4wd, on a 2wd the rotor is bolted to the backside of the hub meaning youll be repacking the wheel bearings at some point. on a 4wd its much easier,its just held in place by the caliper and lugnuts.
