You cannot put a 4wd hub assembly onto a 2wd truck.

Bearings are different.

I have two extra hub/bearing assemblies. If you want them, they are $30 + shipping to you.

Am I missing something? My truck's front bearings just slid onto their spindles. Removed the wheel, removed the brake hardware, removed a huge nut from the spindle, and the bearing just slid off. (Don't re-use the huge nut, though)

I think I know what it is...

You can buy just the bearings (cheaper) or the hub/bearing assembly (more expensive). I think the bearing by itself is about $20/side, while the assembly can cost up to $150+ at an AutoZone (or similar).

Sounds like when you replaced yours - you purchased the hub/bearing assembly. This is the more common method to replace the bearings, since you don't have to press them into/onto the hubs.
