Hey, Old King Coal. I got my units from Auto Parts Wholesalers. They carried about 8 brands and I selected Timkens. Came in what presented as an orange/black Timken box with the correct part numbers. I don’t remember whose name was on the inner bearings. I was just looking to find a USA somewhere and did not.
I do know my rig is 15 years old but I’m from the old school that meant if you took care of something it would last almost forever. And my truck has been babied. I just have to adapt to modern thinking that any vehicle is a throwaway with a certain life span. It’s at the point that every month something surfaces to drain your wallet. This months reminder is an alternator light that comes on briefly. It has 2 alternators about 18 months old. Some posters say this isn’t an alternator problem but a wire that is rubbing somewhere and only controls the light and not the charging system. Well, good luck tracing a single wire under the hood/dash in this thing that disappears in multiple harnesses.
On the subject of Dodges I’ve taken a peek at new gassers but the thing that turns me off is making the boxes out of old scrap metal. Every 2014 and earlier Dodge I see has the wheelwells rusting out. This is in North Carolina, not Boston.

It looks like we have two different bearings, and Timken makes bearings all over the world, so that explains why mines USA made and yours isn’t. I thought we had the same bearings.

For what these trucks cost 15 years shouldn’t be that long of a time. Depends on miles I guess. I don’t know that the vehicle is less quality than before, but the quality of the replacement parts has absolutely gone to sht. It’s truly a shame that we have to put a pretty good amount of effort into finding quality replacement parts. If you buy a Timken bearing, it should be top quality, regardless wether is was made in the US or Taiwan. If you have an 8 year old making bearing for $3 a week I guess you can’t expect too much. We should at least be able to buy OEM replacements from a dealer, but, like you, even if you buy Motorcraft you end up with Chinese aftermarket parts.

I wish you the best of luck on your truck. Maybe it’s just a short and you can pop the hood and it will be easy for you to find.

On driving a Dodge, I was just be facetious. Ford and Chevrolet would BOTH have to go to China and the supply of used trucks dry up before I would drive a Dodge.

Rockauto has Timken for $190 to $220 depending on 2WD or 4WD.
