FATS - Pre-Departure!

This is NOT the view of your vehicle you want to be exposed to the day before a road trip. Ugh!

I was cleaning and checking the truck over before my Friday departure and I noticed that the right rear wheel was gooey. Wheels should not be gooey. I figured wheel bearing seal had went.

And I was right. Unfortunately the wheel bearing is non-serviceable and the entire hub assembly needs to be replaced in order to fix the seal. This is because the ABS sensor is contained inside the sealed assembly. It is also because the engineers at Land Rover are insane.

$805.70 and I'm cleared for departure.
