Ah ha!  Success!

I really had to bear down on that jack handle in the press, though.  And when the hubs separated, they were like gunshots going off!

The funny thing is that that was just a point of pride.  I needed to get either the shafts out or the hub off--either one would allow me to get the brake backing plates, which I need for the 11" brake upgrade.  And the shafts were pulled days ago.  But I couldn't just let it go, either...

Anyway, I've also been pulling the seals on the 25 and 41 axles (the ones off my Jeep, which I will be reinstalling.  I need to order new seals, and decide which (if any) bearings I need to order.  In the meantime, I will be cleaning and prepping those two axles for painting.
