Default Life of wheel bearings?

What is the expected life of wheel bearings for the 06 Dodge Ram 3500. I have about 104,000 miles on mine now and I am wondering if I should do a time change on them before they fail.

suspend the front end, see if they wiggle, if not, not yet. On the other hand, if you're 4x4, check the u-joints on the axles. If they're loose----at all----then its time.

They should get you at least 100k miles unless you're hauling or on rough roads all the time. After 100,00k it's up to Murphy. I have been stranded before which has made me big on preventative maintenance. If you have the cash and time, I'd go for it. 100k is a time to just replace all the suspension bushings, ball joints, struts, etc., then go get an alignment and be good for another 75k on the components at least.

Thanks for the reply. Old Murph and I are quite well acquainted so maybe I should beat him to the garage. Thanks again for the info that is kinda what I thought.
