As I live in Canada, we seem to pay a premium for parts. I have seen complete hubs for the ram from $120.00 to $250.00 from various US sources, but here in Canada that same hub is $466.00. Importing is slightly cheaper but brokerage fees can be painful.
I did on my blazer wheel bearings...bought the cheapest and they had only 90 day warranty on them....6 months and they were shot...... saved like 50bucks each up front ...but I would have spent a whole lot more the second time..... buy quality....
