    Hey Supajosh, welcome to the forums!!! The first thing you should do is get a chiltons or haynes manual for CJ's, they cover most all the maintianence you will need, and some advanced stuff also. Now, back to the Question, repacking the bearings is pretty easy if you have had any time with the wrenches. Plus it's a good time to check the front brakes, axles etc. You will want to replace the seals, and probably the washers on the lock-out hubs. It's messy, so have lots of rags and handcleaner. Make sure you pay attention to the order of the parts as you remove them, and like brakes, you should do one side at a time, so you can check the complete side to make sure you have everything in the correct order/position. Use the search feature on the toolbar above to look for writeups, but a good manual is worth the $$$. Good Luck!

      you know ur gonna get the bug and end up doing more than just the front bearings...get both manuals, sometimes one sucks and sometimes its the other...and for gods sake do a really good job packing them with grease...otherwise you may as well not done it at all i had to throw some smilies on here, they have a good selection on these forums
