Just bought a sweet little 96 ranger with auto 4 wheel drive. Truck is a 5 speed 3.0 V-6 if that helps.
first off the 4 wheel drive does not engage (i hate auto hubs). the transfer case seems to be working because it will go into low range but without the front tires pulling.
i went ahead & ordered a manual conversion kit that i found in a link on this site (thanks for the link) ordered the hub kit as well.
Now on to my question: since i will be half way in i thought about changing wheel bearings as well but i could not seem to find a thread on here for a 4 wheel drive. I know they make "special" tools that will make it easier, just wondering what they are & how difficult it will be to change them out at the same time i am changing the hubs over...special tools for the hub removal would be a great help as well.
Any & all help is greatly appreciated
