Need help in Western NC

Hey guys. I just got back up to school at Western Carolina University and both my front wheel bearings are going out and I am about 10 hours from home without all my tools. I was wondering if anyone within about 2 hours would be willing to help me change me wheel bearings. I have the money for the bearings and pressing them but can't afford the outrageous labor to get it done. My my zip is 28723 if that helps. Any help, would be amazing.

What do you guys think about these bearings. I mean the OEM don't last long so would you try out these?

I'm down for helping, I gots basic tools, Sockets, ratchet, wrenches and a hammer. Though I don't have a press for the bearings.

This kind of thing is why T.H.R.E.T. exists.

I appreciate it. I could knock it out at home but just don't have my tools up here. BTW those TSB springs are feeling great on the truck. Make the ride much nicer.
