Rear whell bearing replace on D35

Does anyone have or know of a write-up on how to replace wheel bearing on a D35 for '94 XJ? I just finished the front hub replacements this weekend and noticed that the rear wheels have a sloppy feel too. I'm a bit lost on where to start and how to finish this one. Thanks for any help!

I did mine several years ago. Pretty simple job, but an arbor press is essential. My axles did not have c-clips, so I did not have to open the differential. Just remove the four nuts behind the and the axles came right out. The bearing cups came out easily, too.

I seem to remember that the Timken bearings that I bought came with fairly detailed instructions.

Some in and out play is normal. you need to jack it up and see if the wheel has play up and down.

Agreed. You use the term "sloppy feel", which is pretty vague. Sloppy in WHICH DIRECTION is the key. Axial play (in the direction of the axle shaft) is NORMAL. Radial play (perpendicular to the shaft axis) is NEVER acceptable.

I don't own an XJ any longer, but I still think they are the best of all the Jeep products ever made. My XJ was my favorite vehicle in my 50+ years of driving.
So...I stick around and give advice.
