Default Help with rear axle bearings?

So I have the all the bearings and seals for my Hilux but no jig and press. Does anybody around here have these? I've got the axles out and the retaining rings cut off but the bearings aren't budging. The dealer wants a couple hours labor to do them and I'm not cool with that idea since it's only going to take a few minutes. I'd much rather pay somebody here.

I've got cash, can get whatever beer you'd like, parts trades, etc...

Thanks

Tom

I'd try something from Harbor Freight before paying shop rates. I think my HF bearing puller was under $20 & I've used the snot out of it. I'd lend you mine if you were closer but by the time we met up you could own one @ $3.60 something/gal.

Thanks for the insight. I managed to get them out using the "slam it on a block of wood method". It worked perfectly and didn't so much as leave a mark on the spline end. I didn't like the thought of it at all but desperate times call for desperate measures! I will always do mine this way from now on. It is back together now with all new seals, bearings and 1" wheel cylinders.
