    It's actually common on the pickup models to fail at 100k mi. Those damn ceramic ball bearings, great for high performance stuff, not so much longevity though.

    Looks like SocalHDR & I have new toys.
    My new 2007 F-750 Service Truck with a CAT C7 7.2L 151400 miles on her. It took me a week to find the right one, show the boss, purchase it, stickers, register, and pack my tools in her but she's ready to go. One Happy Grease Monkey right here.
