Question about 1988 Jeep Cherokee
Start by removing the center axle nut. (torqued very tight about 175ft lbs...you need a solid breaker bar with about a five foot pipe added for leverage, or 3/4 impact gun. then remove wheel and caliper and rotor. Remove the hub bearing by taking out the three 12pt bolts on the opposite side of the steering knuckle. Once those bolts are loose use wd40 on the hub parting line and hammer on the bolt heads to push the bearing out.Loosen the bolts each time they need to be backed off till the hub is loose. The axle comes out right through the hole where the bearing was. Make sure you grease the joints well because you cant once it's back together.
