    Wheel hub assembly

    Replacing my hub assemblies and I had a question... I had seen Eddie's write up about replacement but now I can't find it. He used Timken bearings and my question was since I'm running 37's do I need an upgraded unit or will a Timken replacement be sufficient enough? Also will the ones Eddie used work for my 2014? I can't find any Timken's that say they fit my vehicle to save my life. Thanks guys

    I don't believe there is a "upgraded" unit bearing available. If there is an aftermarket unit out there claiming to be stronger than stock I'd be interested in hearing about it. Running 37's you should be fine although you may not get the same life expectancy you would with stock wheels & tires.

    The difference in the unit bearings is in the length of the sensor wire. I remember Cozdude specifically saying these would work on the newer models as he had plenty of wire even running a coilover setup like he is.

    Timken is the best I know of. Google found them pretty quickly. Is this what you're looking for?

    Yes that was the thread thank you!

    Thank you everyone else! I had tried the Google method but wasn't sure if they would fit on mine. Amazon said the ones Eddie had listed wouldn't fit, so I wasn't sure.

    Unit Bearing recommendations

    Replacing my unit bearings in the next week and just curious if one brand is better than the other. Have read that certain brands come with the shorter sensor wiring causing issues on install.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
