To give you an idea...I just replaced kevoo's hub bearing (256 dollars) and he has only 39k miles on his truck.

Expect to replace brakes (drums as well), ball joints, tie rods, and pretty much all suspension parts very often.

i am.....not had any problems....but if you are planning on running 35's with 15x10's on a '98+ you can have ball joint and other leading problems because the suspension isn't designed for that much extra weight...

I never had issues with hub bearings, but i did start to have balljoint issues after about 30k miles running 35s and 15x10s and tie rod issues.

i never had brake issues i bought some good ceramics and no issues.

those are cheap replacements. I am not too worried about that stuff I am just worried about messing up my fenders. I plan to do some fourwheeling but When I travle home from base I am going to put my rims with my 31's on so it will save me the wear and tear on the highway. do any of you know what backspacing you have on your rims because that is my biggest concern right now!!

95% of manufacture 15x10's with a 5x4.5" bolt pattern have a 3.625 (or 3 5/8") backspacing.....

with 7" of lift, you will be close, if you have flares on the truck, you wont be able to clear.....i am bearly clearing the flares on my truck (and the tires rub slightly when i turn and hit a bump) with 9" of lift...

so I am probably going to have to do a little costomizing? The wheels I got have 4 in b/s and the truck came with some bushwacker fender flares. I dont know maybe I will just have to crank the T-bars to get that extra little bit. I will probably invest in a caster/camber kit to realign it better. IDK. Just trying to get as much out of my truck as possible before I go to a solid axle next winter and a 302 swap in 2010 when I get out of the military.
