12 point 13mm socket and a 36mm socket, then the same tools you would use for changing a tire or your brake pads.

x2!!! However I prefer a product called Deep Creep from sea foam....It's like $9 a can but is so worth it. Ever since I started using it I only use my PB when I don't know where I put the deep creep.

It's been a while since I've done this but I'd say a 6 pack if you drink at a moderate rate. The only hard part is pulling the hub but it WILL come out. that and those damn 13s tend to rust like all hell. If you have a hand impact driver it will help tremendously but I don't remember if it will fit back there.

Just did both my fronts. Easiest way to get the hubs off is to put the 13mm wrench on the 3 hub nuts. One by one use the BFH to knock the hub out. Comes out like a charm every time. U will beat the hell out of them too. Done this with 3 jeeps.
