upgrade wheel bearings

I was told that in the newer fords there is a kit you can get to do away with the sealed unit and go back to serviceable bearings anyone know about them or where to find them?

The site says $1550 for the kit. Could probably get at least a few sets of unit bearings for a few hundred thousand miles for what this particular kit costs.

Did the Dynatrac conversion... Was about 2 grand if I remember right. Totally worth it. New bearings are around 50 bucks when they go out versus ~800 each for the non-serviceable hubs.

Note: you won't have the auto locking hub feature anymore.. So, you'll have to actually get off you butt to lock the hubs like an old school truck.
