Found out last Friday winch bar has arrived in Adelaide. The ARB bloke said that if I help him install it he will cut me a good deal to fit it. So hopefully for a 100 bucks or less I will have a winch and bar this Saturday arvo.
My passenger wheel bearing is stuffed too for now though I am going to leave it. I am actually going to get my mech with a 30t press to press apart a spare I have and install a couple of new bearings. That way it will cost me less than 80 bucks all up.

Cypher not sure if you have done the wheel bearings before but if not I recommend removing the hub and axle together. I used a puller on my first one like a thread suggested and it was A PITA and almost broke my puller. When I did the second one I removed both and pressed out the axle from the hub, far easier. .

Regards A

Once the nut is undone in my experience I have always found 'em pretty easy to get apart, a couple of taps with a drift on the end of the axle is all that is normally needed to free the axle from the hub.
The hardest part is getting the hub free from the knuckle and even then it normally only takes a few strategic taps to get it to dislodge from the knuckle....

AG you may want to research the hubs because from what I've seen you can't press the bearings out/in as the hub and races are integrated, check out http://www.myjeepxj.com/cherokee-repairs/cherokee-hub for some pictures of a hub thats been pressed apart.

I rang CBC and got them to look up the composite rotor hubs, same price as they quoted me yesterday so I've got two of them on order, due tomorrow.

I also did a bit of looking over and found that my power steering pump and AC compressor are pretty rooted so I'll have to sort something out with them. I also found that the water pump is weeping coolant so have one of them on the way from Wooders, hopefully I can get it by the weekend ready to put in.
