usually, t/o bearings 'rumble' when you're sitting idling in neutral without the pedal pushed in. You can't hear it rumble otherwise thanks to road noise. They don't squeek....though they may 'squeel'.

if it's a squeek an it's coming from the inside the truck, it's the master cylinder. If it's in the trans, it's the slave cyl. VERY common thing to go out on these trucks is the slave cyl. Usually they just take a shit and you can't shift and it gets hard to shift, no pedal pressure.

Mechanically inclined? Yeah you can do it. Get yourself a Chilton's or Haynes manual. It gives you about all you need to do the tranny drop/clutch swap. And... Don't forget to change your slave cyl!!!
