OK,LOL your engine is a 3.9 right. you will need to removes a good amount of the engine. if you pull the radiator out you may be able to replace them in the truck. but I would just pull the motor to make it easier. I wander why you feel you need to replace the bearings? they rarely go bad on these motors.

Hi & thanks for contact,- I think if a new camshaft comes in, do you change the bearings with the same? Or it is not necessary what you mean?

No, not unless the motor is very worn out. I have installed new cams in motors that have had well over 100,000 miles!!!! install the cam you'll be fine! you will have to have new lifters. you shouldn't install old lifters on a new cam!

Hi and thank you for your effort to answer my question,
that is exactly the case, my Hydros were renewed and the camshaft.
And I thought it was necessary to renew the cups what a heart surgery
comes close to the installation of the bearing will not forgive any mistakes right?
I think I will leave the old bearings installed. And will see what happens.
The engine has run 70000mls. Thanks for everything.
Many greetings.
K.
