    Hey guys, I am planning on replacing the driver's side hub bearing tonight and need to grab the right size socket. I have seen 35mm and 36mm mentioned. Does anyone know whether the hub nut on the 2006 1500 4x4 is 35 or 36mm?

    Thanks!

    Its a 36mm. They can be tough the first time off so try to use a good socket, those cheap ones will split or round off. Snap-on socket works good.

    It was actually a 35mm but luckily with a little persuasion (aka hammer) a 1 3/8" will fit too!
