They will last a long time as long as your not driving through deep standing water. On my old truck, I have 227,000 on it and still the original wheel bearings. What I did was every oil change, jack it up and spin the wheels and wiggle the front end good, if it turn smooth and there is no slop its good.

I thought I read on this forum somewhere, that bearings were available for the 1500 with a grease fitting, to allow re-packing etc???
Can't remember where the post was though?
Duh.

I've never heard of such an animal.. I'm not saying your wrong, but I've never seen a wheel bearing you could do that to.:dunno:

Al...he might be talking about those bearing buddies that you can grease the bearings on trailers and the cover seals out water and dust. Not sure though

I had those on my boat trailer, but I don't think they are available for trucks.
