Front Hub Bearings

My 02 Ranger is due for some new front wheel hub bearings again. I've checked online and I see a wide range of prices. I know that it's pricey to begin with but what I want to know is there a particular brand of bearing that is head and shoulders above the other in quality. I don't mind paying the bigger bucks for a dang good part.
The repair history is mixed on this. Some have lasted much longer then others but I don't know what brand was put in.

Timken is by far one of the best for Hub/bearings.

If Moog Made hubs. (they might, i don't know off the top of my head) they'd be a good brand too.

Thanks,
I had seen where Moog made these and available from Advanced Auto for about $175.00 a copy, a big difference. Moog always made great stuff before but since so many things being outsourced to China nowadays I wasn't sure if they'd be OK.

I got a pair of Timkens for a good price from AM Autoparts - After Market Auto Parts - Headlights, Mirrors, and More but compare prices from other online places.

Check on Lifetime Warranty replacement, pay the price and never buy another hub.
