yea timkin is a good brand but ive gone through two of them already. not gonna lie, just get whatever. they arent serviceable so when they are gone they are gone. get whatever you can get with a warranty. especially if you plan on froadin

I've just used Duratec or whatever the Autozone brand is. Wheel bearings shouldn't wear out a lot. I have over 100K miles on my truck and only replaced them once. I think around 85K or so. I am a 2wd. Just make sure you pack the sh*t out of them though.
