I got it apart. Got (what was left) of the bearing out, the CV axle popped out of its carrier up top, so i got a quick lesson in cv joint rebuilding, got that back togther..

Now i find out the other wheel bearing on the ass is shot. Soooo ill be changing that one to.....

Great start to this trip ill tell ya.

I wish these things just had solid axles at each end with front lockouts. Itd make my life alot eaiser.

My credo
If it's not broken Don't Fix It!
Usually I use a press to push the bearing out of the hubs on the 4x4 wheelers I've owned. This seemed to work the best for me when I kept blowing them running a set of 29" vampire tires on the grizzly. If you have access to a press I Highly recommend using that instead of beating on it even with a brass punch.

it is easier to fix and understand than "her"
I use a big bolt and washers and my big sockets to change those if I don't have my bj press with me. Some light tapping if needed

Actually bobby thats a great idea since i dont have any real access to a press.

I was gonna try to do it with piece of wood, but thats literally putting a square peg in a round hole.
