With only 75 miles on it thee should not be many problems. First lift the front left tire off the ground and make sure it is stable. Check for any rub spots when you turn the wheel all the way to the left and right, check the bearings by grabbing the tire while still up and try moving just the tire back and forth. Then up and down. If there is any give or play in the tire the bearing should be looked at. When going straight there is no side pressure on the bearing but turning applies pressure sideways to the bearings Then do the same with the other side. You did not say if it is 4 wheel drive. When you are checking the wheels rotate the tire a little to see if there is a noise in the carrier..
