Default wheel bearings

my wheel bearings went bad on the front drivers side. so I bought them and plan on replacing them tomorrow. my questions are do you gotta take off the caliper to do the inside bearing? next question is what tools and socket sizes will I need because its parked on the side of the road I'm getting dropped off at it so I need to have everything with me that I am going to need. its a 93 2wd 3.9 btw. thank you in advance

You will need to pull the rotor completely off to get the inner bearing. You also need to replace the bearing races, otherwise, you will be right back on the side of the road in relatively short order. You would be better off having the truck towed to where your tools are, rather than sitting on the side of the road, and discovering that you need another tool.......
