    I cant believe my 08 f250 needs a front wheel bearing. with less than 30,000 miles it grinding and growling. I can see the dealer breaking my balls about warranting it. I think it time for a 2011

    Some would rather make absurd payments than get their hands dirty... But, unless it was a really really early 08, with 30k the ford dealer should be replacing the bearing under warranty, that's way too early unless there's more to the story...

    I guess 1k lbs of plow hanging off the front has nothing to due with a bearing failure??? What about driving style or offset wheels???

    So the fix to a wheel bearing was a new truck ?

    Don't let pinky see this thread......................the sfa has nothing to do with hub bearings wearing quickly, must be operator error. ;)

    well i had to pickup splash gaurds for my new truck today, and i was talking to the service writer and he told me the 08 i traded in needed, both front wheel bearings, u joints, brakes and rotors all the way around, and my new truck payment is only 27 bucks more a month, it was like a no brainer for me. The salesman already sold the truck i traded in too

    Makes sense when the payment is only $27.Were these gas or diesel trucks and what do you think of the difference so far?
    Did you keep the plow and harness?

    And another 4 years of payments too I'll bet... :rolleyes:

    You must be drivin' it like ya stole it to need that much work at 30k miles. I'd hate to be the next guy to own your old truck. :dizzy:

    I accutally traded my old boss plow in for a new one, the harness and mounting plates all swapped over. the truck i traded was a 5.4 gas and i got a 6.2 gas. the 6.2 has big improvements over the 5.4 I dont see it practical in buying a deisel. I live in the snow belt of Central new york, we average 120 inches of snow a year, so truck carries the plow from november to april .

    and all the tons of salt thay put down up here will eat the under side of the trucks/cars and require faster changes in parts big time.
