they have sealed wheel bearing pullers. Also might be able to rig something with a slide hammer. or sitck something long and solid through the tube and use a BFH ( a big hammer)

Tired Petes Dana 44 is still sitting in my driveway and its in good shape
You are welcome to come and get it for a steal-if you know what I mean.
Practice on it, save the good parts and junk the rest.

Getting it off is not the problem, if necessary you can use a grinder and cut one side of it and knock it off. However, IMHO you are gonna need a press to put the new one on. Another bit of advice, load the bearing up with a good quality axle grease before reinstalling the shaft. Reason is, by the time your gear oil works its way down to the NEW bearing you may burn it out. I suggest you merely take your axle down to your friendly mechanic's shop and I am sure they will press one on and/or off for a minor amount of money, like maybe a $5 tip. Only takes a minute or two per bearing. john

If you want to save the bearings and reuse them you would need a bearing puller, but it does not work all the time. and if you install them do not use a hammer and bang them back in, some may say that you can use a long pipe and hammer them back in but every time you hit the pipe with the hammer you bang the roller bearing with the racer and cage and you put little pits on it and they will fail sooner that if you would have installed it with a press, I would say to take it to a shop with a press or buy one for yourself. I have to replace my rear seals on my WJ I have to buy a taller press mine is to short, but again one can allways use another tool.

Taking it to a shop for a $5 tip. I must not know the shops you know. I have been charged $60 to press the bearing on, when I go de mine again I"m going to by a press at Northen or Pep Boys.

Thats what happens when you dont stick to one mechanic that you have a relationship with. To charge $60 for such a minor job is outrageous but indicative that its NOT your friendly mechanic but a stranger. The S. Fla. Jeep Club is fortunate to have Tranny Doc to go to for reasonable responsible service. However, I hope they dont take advantage of him. He deserves something for his services although he often offers them free of charge. At least take the poor guy out to lunch.
This is perhaps close to my last post. On 12/27 the movers come to take my stuff to New Mexico, I will have to find MY friendly mechanic all over again in a new town (Las Cruces) hope I have luck. john
