Welcome to the site! Looks like you aren't too far away from me. I bought the truck in my avatar in Wichita and drove it the 170+ miles home. That was a fun trip.
Are you trying to get the hub off or are you trying to get the wheel to turn because the brakes are locked? If you are trying to get the wheel to just turn, you can back the brakes off by turning the adjustments on the back by turning them toward the rear of the truck.
When you get the time, definitely let us know what number your truck is and the registration number on the hood if it's still there. It's neat to see who has what. I have all mine listed in my signature and some links to videos of two of the trucks. #5314 is the one that came from Wichita.
