The hub assembly just didnt want to budge. We even tried the trick told in numerous write ups. But after a total 5-6 hours of banging it as well as a few of my fingers, it started to break free.
Been there, done that, and it's one of the 2 main reasons that when I get my Jeep the way I like it the front axle will be a spindle & bearings type (the other being locking hubs.) I've butted heads with a few members over the benefits vs drawbacks of both styles, and their biggest point in favor of unit bearings is how quickly you can replace them. I'm not in a race, and I'll take something that can be serviced even if it takes longer.

Being that theres over 210k miles and these were the originals up here in new england, I didnt expect them to just fall out. But now I believe next time will be much easier. I think the nicest thing about them being a quick job is so you dont hold up everyone else on the trail when you break them. One guy in my club had his back on the trail in about 20 minutes

Wheeled it pretty late last night. First time night time wheeling. Got stuck in some mud down a trail (high centered) had to get pulled out by a jk rubicon wasn't thrilled about it.... I was the only YJ there... But thank god I wasn't the only one to get stuck! The pics are of us meeting at a gas station before we went out, a small but steep hill climb, and one of the trail...

Sucks you had to get pulled out, but I bet night riding was was interesting, caked on mud looks cool in the moonlight. Ever go when it's pouring rain at night?

I finally got to get a good look at the Jeep to assess the damage from last weekend. Leaking water pump, leaking rear main, knocking from clutch/flywheel, broken rear exhaust hanger, tweaked driver side front bumper, right front caliper is leaking, and the power steering has hard spots. So I'm trailering it home today, along with my toolbox, and when I get home from working on airport ground support equipment all day long I'll dive into the Jeep. I don't regret one bit the fun I had that resulted in it being all banged up LOL

First thing will be to borrow a pressure washer and clean the underside. I hate dirt falling my eyes & ears! (A mouthful of dirt isn't as bad LOL)

from what I read, 33s 2.5L and 4.88 is the primo setup with stock trans. Did I understand that correctly?

Primo when talking about the AX-5 may be pushing it a little
