SIMPLE! Did them once to replace them and another time I had to take them off to pull the axle shaft out to replace the inner axle shaft seal. The hardest part is getting them off. They are held on by 4 studs (sometimes the nut will be seized on and the stud comes out no biggy) Just takes a little time hitting a little at a time in a circular pattern around the hub. You can use a puller also but I never did. When you do the bearings it comes as a whole hub assembly wheel studs and all. Around $400 a side. So if you can do it yourself it is worth it. Tires off, calipers, rotors, 4 wheel drive hubs off behind the locking hub will be a split ring on the inner axle shaft take those off along with washers. Then you are ready to attack the bearing hub nuts. Look on the back easy to spot there is 4. Then some muscle and off the hubs come and reinstall! Once you get into it you be glad you didn't pay some one to do it. Sometimes they come of easy some times they are a REAL pain just be patient and keep with it an you'll get her done! Goodluck!
