Did someone enlarge the hole in the brake backing plate? There is no way the bearing should be able to pull through the backing plate with the rollers am cage still in tact.

Jeepwhore your the winner. I had a highly recomended mechanic that does nothing but axles regear my jeep with 4:10s and while he had it apart I had him put in a one piece axle kit. 1500 miles later the right wheel bearing ate it's self. My mechanic said it was a defective bearing. 200 miles later my left axle fell out. Then I decided to figure out why. He enlarged the backing plate so the axle would come out without having to take the brake apart. If you want something done right do it YOURSELF!

The more I wheel with these tires, the more I like them. They handle everything I throw at them.

The only problem I have found with them is snow covered roads. But with no real top on the Jeep, it's not a problem for me.

That happened to my bil while we were coming back from Attica. Luckily the jeep did not flip. We unloaded our other jeep and loaded it up on the trailer. Ended up just changing the whole axles out for a set of wide track axles.

Episode of MacGyver - Cessna makes an emergency landing in a field and blow the nose wheel on the landing, mud trench is created, along with a log skid for the nose gear. SUCCESS!

So he did that and made no provision to actually hold the axle in place? Put me down in favor of the aforementioned *** whoopin'
