How do you remove the wheel bearings from a Dakota?

I am in the process of making some changes to my Dakota and need to remove the wheel bearings.

Remove the brake caliper assembly and rotor. Remove the large locknut in the hub with a 1 7/16 socket and a LONG breaker bar. Turn the hub over and remove the large snap ring. Take a hammer and tap the snap-ring firmly to free it up in the groove. Once removed drive out the old bearing with a large drift.
