At what mileage are people changing these at? Any reason not to go with the hub assembly from Timken (HA500601) at $158 per side shipped?

I went with that same one about 4 months ago at 138k. So far, so good.

Reading more it appears these Timken hubs are the genuine hub assemblies, but without the $150 Green oval box. I'm also seeing examples of wheel bearings letting go at low mileage (<80k) without warning. Mine have 76k. See attached. After changing the front diff fluid (35k - full and looked fine), checking for hub play (none), tire pressure (35f and 38r) and rotating the tires, the low frequency grinding persisted. One last comparison drive in my 4Runner with the same new AT/3s to rule out tire noise, just ordered a set hubs from Amazon. Looking forward to knocking back a few IPAs while swapping out the hubs Tuesday night after they arrive. What's quieter for the neighbors? Mighty blows with the BFH or air compressor cycling and brappp of the air hammer?

My ps front shell bearing went at 85k. In replaced both at the same time to be safe. I'm a belt and suspenders type of a guy...
