Welcome to Dodge wheel bearings! Usually a large HD puller and a big swing wrench are needed to get them out of the knuckle. Before you install the new one, remove all the rust from inside the knuckle and liberally coat it with antiseize.

thanks for answering... i was told that i might shove the axle in too far and damage the gears or transfer housing if i were to use a gear pully. is that a possibility?

Never seen it happen. You're more likely to seperate the hub from the rest of the bearing first.

If you cleaned out the knuckle and used antiseize, it won't be so bad if you have to do it again.
