Northeast so we get snow and salt.
I occasionally tow, usually just a 4x8' trailer, nothing too extreme and I don't plow with it.
Most of the miles on my truck are highway miles, driving 50 miles round trip to and from my old job.
Wheel bearings are easy to change and only $80 on ebay, not a big deal at all.
In the 85k Ive owned it (currently at 133k) the most major repair I had to get done was new bearings in the rearend at 96k and that was most likely due to an overtightened pinion nut from when I had the pinion seal replaced earlier.
Right now my truck needs an ac compressor bearing (just gonna get the whole compressor replaced) because it whines and Ive noticed the limited slip unit in the rear mostly likely needs replacing because it drags a little although that might be the bigger tires, not really sure.
