Replacing The Jeep Front Wheel Bearings

After a trip to Philadelphia to see the Liberty Bell we whizzed up the Pennsylvania turnpike when something felt odd in the front of the Jeep. Back at the family farm I realized it was time to replace the front wheel bearings that had been only repacked prior to leaving California. I also replaced the leaking valve cover gasket and packed some Permatex high-temp metal repair compound around the crack in the exhaust manifold. I was amazed it worked the whole way home.
