    I think my rep got the quote wrong on the price. I'd bet it's $1,200k in labor and $300 for the part. I just wanted a video of a guy replacing one and it's a ton of labor. I found what looked like the part for about $300.

    12 hours to replace the bearing? I doubt it. Assuming $100 an hour.

    It's not something I'm taking on. That's for sure.

    I'm at 63k miles. In a short discussion with the service rep, I didn't feel like trying to work the warranty was going to produce any fruit.

    Fair assessment. Not sure what their labor rates are here in Colorado Springs but I'd bet it's north of $100/hr.

    Meaning, you don't have an extended warranty is what I was referencing

    I don't know how but I totally missed your two updates. You got bigger problems than a bearing drop.

    I bet they are right on the parts price. They may be taking the easy route and just replacing the entire prop shaft assembly, which they may have to do if the yokes are messed up from smacking into the cross member.

    Otherwise parts are only a $2-300 for OEM carrier bearing 37230-34050 (4wd) and one u joint 04371-0C084 (4wd) assuming the closest joint is toast or damaged upon removed. Labor should only be a few hours on that still. U joints are a driveway job (not this time of year!). 30mm socket, impact, snapring pliers, couple of BFHs.

    Here's a simple video showing how to do it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vvC7Iy3RKog

    Back from my trip, Rough Country drop kit parts did not arrive (after paying extra for shipping) but I got my truck back from the dealership.

    Asked a local repair shop to quote me for replacing the carrier bearing for my truck and they came back with $500. It has to be a drive shaft replacement as well. Tomorrow I'll dig in a bit deeper and hopefully get some video of the drive shaft and bearing while driving.

    UPDATE 4

    Rough Country carrier bearing drop kit finally installed. Sorry the pic is focused in the wrong spot. You can note the chips in the paint and unseen are the dings in the cross member above it. Test driving so far looks like the shudder is gone. I have to figure out a slick way to mount my phone under the truck to get some video of it in action.

    [​IMG]

    I'll report more when I get some more miles on the current fix.

    @19TurdPro and all that weighed-in - a huge thank you!

    Did you drop both bolts and then install the drop, because going off of memory it looks like you might have installed the carrier bearing upside down. There should be a hole on the bottom of it. Perhaps someone else can weigh in.

    The more I look at this pic the more I think your carrier bearing is upside down. The flange/mounting bracket is offset from the center of the bearing by like 5/8 of an inch. If it was installed upside down it would bring the drive shaft closer to the cross member and cause more shudder (probably enough to smack the cross member) . The carrier bearing, when installed right should have one hole right in the center of the bottom. See pics. If it had a lot of miles on it installed upside down, I'd budget for a replacement soon-ish just to be cautious. Pretty easy DIY if you're savvy.

    If it was installed upside down with a lift, there's a good chance this was causing your problems, and that there was enough shudder to cause slipping and engagement of the traction control.
