Here's the instructions, the hub and disc com off together. Look at these instructions and tell me where you are stuck.

1. Remove caliper.
2. Remove cap and snap ring, then remove cone
washers with tapered punch.
3. Insert suitable length bolts into flange bolt holes, then tighten
bolts evenly and remove flanges.
4. Remove free wheel hub cover and snap ring, then remove
nut, spring washer and cone washer with suitable tapered
punch.
5. Remove free wheel hub body and gasket.
6. Remove locknut, lock washer and adjusting nut.
7. Remove axle hub and brake disc as an assembly.
8. Remove oil seal and inner bearing from hub.
9. Reverse procedure to install. Torque adjusting nut to 43 ft.
lbs., then back off nut. Torque nut to 18 ft. lbs. Using spring
scale attached to hub bolt, check that preload is 1.4-12.6.
Install lockwasher and locknut, if equipped. Torque locknut

Actually, the instructions are, in fact, for a 4WD or a 2WD. The 4WD hub removal starts at step 4. Is it possible you can attach a pic of where you are at so I can see where your stuck.

I attempted to upload the image and it is too large for this connection. Thanks any way.

Check my last post, I made a clarification. Are you having trouble with the cone washers? This is where most people get stuck.
