Bought the Timken units from Amazon, think they were 180 each complete. just looked, says there 176 bucks each

If you are talking about the axle stub needle bearings you can just replace those as well if everything else is good. They are like ten bucks.

i am on my original hubs at 100,000 so even if i need to get one soon
I can see spending 1500.00 + to put regular bearings in there specially when its so easy to swap a unit bearing


and the OEM hubs are Warn maybe not as good as the ones that come with a Dynatrac kit but they aren't known for excessive failure

OP try to stick with Timken like mentioned and you will be fine

some of us even grease them if yours have the ABS port

I'm still on stock hubs and I'm at 210k with 100k on 35" tires. I can't justify doing dynatrac, would be nice tho. When they go out which I'm starting to get some tell tell clues it's coming soon I'm going with timken.

I personally like the Manuel lock hubs better its a little more work but it's simple and reliable and you don't have to worry about vacuum lines getting brittle and cracking then being stuck with no 4x4 just a personal preference . I also run 38x13.50s so they tend to wear stock bearings a little faster.
