Front Bearings

I know this is kind of an odd question but Im looking for the bolt circle of the mounting hub. Im also looking to find what the center hub area is.

where the attaching bolts are... there are 3 bolts in a concentric circle. I want to know what that circle is.. I know the wheel studs are on a 4.5 inch circle.

Perhaps go to a parts store with a piece of cardboard and a sharpie ?

I like where your going with this.

U trying to find a bearing that will fit that hole but have a different pattern? Most parts stores have calipers to measure outside and inside diameter. Just go up there and get them to pull a hub unit and measure the outside diameter of the mount.
If they ask why, say you need to make sure it will fit the hole you have.. They dont care either way.

so here is the real reason I want to know this. I am building a trailer to go behind the jeep and want to have the same bolt pattern as the towing vehicle. I also would like to build this to "squat" so a full axle wont work.

YEAP what he said^^^... Can get front cherokee 2x4 axle. And it already has the stub axles in there. Very easy... No monkeying around with making something work.. Get hub bearings and all at a U pull it yard for less than 40 bucks.

Or if you wanting just the lug pattern, any for ranger or explorer front 2x4 axle with be spindles and rotor. A much easier setup to use and the bearings last forever.
