    I've been dragging my feet so long on getting 4x4 hubs pressed in on my 1st gen so I can finish my 4x4 conversion. Also have spindle gussets to weld in which I'm 100% capable of but if it can all be done at once for a good price, even better.

    Anyone know someone who will do the hubs for under a couple hundred? I can always just remove the spindles first too. All parts are in my garage already

    Have that, but don't have all the dies, and I'm told that may not be enough force

    People use them for it for sure, it’s what Timmy Toolman used in his video on it. Might be a bigger issue for rust belt trucks. No personal experience either way from me though.

    I’d imagine after you get the dies and all that you’ll be pretty close to what a shop would charge anyway though. Hopefully someone has a good recommendation.

    I need to get mine replaced soon as well and have been eying that press to do it so I’m interested what route you take

    I have a 20 ton press . I've done them before on my trucks with that press (borrowed tooling). Are you going to manual hubs or ADD ? I can help and we can get dies made too because I'm going to be replacing mine in a month or so . I also have a Miller if you wanna burn them gussets here too. I'm off higley n southern. DM let me know

    Cool, sounds promising! You're only a few miles from me, Ellsworth & Broadway. I have an ADD front diff but the plan is to leave it always in the locked position unless it becomes a problem for some reason

    Nah not yet. I was kinda asking for a shop, or more preferably a local enthusiast, I could drive it to. Was going to message Milota since nobody but me has worked on this since Brakes+ butchered my axle seal job almost a decade ago and cost my dad $1k, but still would be nice just to drop it for a weekend and have it done

    I guess my concern was always over pressing the bearing. Thanks for sharing the tool.

    The trick to installing the bearing in the knuckle is freezing the bearing and heating up the knuckle. When you do that the bearing almost falls into the knuckle.
