Default Wheel Bearings gone bad need some advice.

Hey guys I recently found out my front left wheel has a bad wheel bearing. Its the bearing that is behind the hub like the bearing closest to the pumpkin. My question is can u change just the bearing or do u have to buy the hub with the bearings already installed. Thanks.

The hub bearing is serviced as an assembly.

How easy is it to replace a front wheel bearing on a 2004 Ram 1500 4x4 Was hoping to to it my self, I have replaced brake pads and rotors on the truck, but have not done wheel bearings on a car since the old days when you re-packed them when you did a brake job.
Thanks in advance for your help.

hub replacement is a pretty extensive job to be honest. jack truck up take wheel,caliper, and rotor off. then you gotta take axle nut off which is torqued to 175ft/lbs suggest an impact for this. then there is 3 bolts on the back side of the hub to access them without poping ball joints turn the wheel to full lock one way take out bolt then other way for the next bolt may have to push axle in to get socket on then when all bolts are out its just a splined hub so beat it off

I've done quite a few of 'em. The only difference in advise I have is to do the axle nut first if possible, leaving the front wheel on to hold it still.
