Default Hub replacement

Guys, I have a 2004 4X4 and have begun hearing a 'whump-whump' when I make a turn, so I jacked up the front and noticed a wiggle on the right wheel. CV's looked good and no play in the ball joints (?) so I figured it's a bum hub.
Will I be okay with a You Tube video on this - or is there anything specific I should know about before tackling this on my daily driver..?
Thanks so much!

----------

BTW, I found the hub on Ebarf and have one coming by mail.

You should be fine. The first time I changed hubs was on my '02 4x4 Ranger. It was fairly easy. The size of your socket/wrench might make a difference. It's really tight to get them in their on the hub bolts.

It came and I got 'er done! All went well and it feels great to have saved a couple hundred bucks doing it myself. Thanks again!
