    One side, no problem, other side, Warn lockout won't pull out. I have the snaprings off, it just won't pass the snap ring groove in the hub. Seems to be a VERY tight fit. Any tips?
    Thanks in advance!

    some times rust and dry grease build up will do this. lots of pb blaster or other lube and keep working it till pops out.

    Sometimes the end of the axle will "mushroom" and make it hard to get the gear off. Try threading 2 bolts in 180 degrees apart into it and rock it out. If not, feel for burs on the end of the axleshaft and file them off till it comes out.

    another trick is to spin the hub while pulling on the two screws
    good luck
