EB d44 hub housing removal

i have an Early Bronco D44 front axle and stripping it down. I got the drums off and all the brake parts yet cant get the hubs off. This is my first time working on one of these axles..any tips on getting the hub off?

wheel hub? take off lockout, then you will need a dana 44 spindle nut socket, remove first nut, then there is a lock ring to remove then remove the second nut, the hub will then slide off.
