Product Description

Manual Locking Hubs are unanimously recognized as the world's toughest hubs by our thousands of satisfied customers worldwide. Brute strength matters, that is why the bodies of our hubs are crafted from impact resistant nodular iron, and feature a corrosion resistant die cast aluminum cap. Our hubs deliver better 4WD performance when locked and improved fuel economy in 2WD when unlocked, than automatic hubs. Purchasing a set a premium manual hubs is more cost effective than servicing your worn factory hubs. With the money you save you'll be able to carry a spare set, not that you'll need them. Sure you have to get out of the cab to lock the hubs, but unlike automatic hubs you won't have to wait until you lose traction for your four-wheel drive to engage.

Got an older truck that isn't worth spending a lot of money/time/effort on debugging flaky 4WD? These hubs directly replace the OEM vacuum operated "PVM" hubs, giving you manual control. The factory vacuum system has a lot of failure points - seals, hard and soft vacuum lines, controls, and the hubs themselves. These snap into place of the original hubs, bypassing all of those possible failure points. No, they're not as convenient as just turning the dial on the dash (which, BTW, you still have to do...) but they engage as soon as you turn the selector on the hubs, not after moving a few feet, or when they get around to it like the stock system. Note that you can, in fact leave these engaged, at the expense of a little more drag (i.e gas mileage) and wear-and-tear on the front diff (since it turns when the hubs are engaged). Great when you're transitioning on and off surfaces that require 4WD, like the day after that big snow when the streets are clear, but you know you're going to need it when you get to your driveway!

Installation is simple - remove the front wheels, gently pry off the stock hub, check the o-ring (replacement are included), and install the new hub, being sure to seat them completely.

They can randomly fall off while driving. I don't think its the fault of the product per se, but Ford for a crappy design. On my 97 Ranger, all 5 lug nuts and rim must be removed before the lockout can be taken off. On my 98 Ranger, I can just reach down and pull the lockout off without having to remove the rim or anything... Which means they can just randomly fall off.

Here's what happened. I installed the manual lockouts and drove in circles on a dirt field several times, both ways, to be sure the 4 wheel drive was working properly. It did. Well that seemed fast and easy. Then I decided to take a drive on the road, so I headed down the driveway and made a left. Right then the passenger lockout jumped ship and rolled into a ditch. My neighbor started flagging me down. We stood at the side of the road for 10 min talking about what a bad design it was and how I can fix it so it can't just pop off. We talked about wrapping wire and tape around the lockout to hold the little nubs down in the channel, which seemed like it would work, but the rim wouldn't go over the wrap of wire and tape. It was then I noticed that there is a ridge inside the rim that is supposed to fit snugly on top of the nubs on the lockout and that holds them down inside the channel which prevents the lockout from coming off. The problem (in my case) was the ridge sits too far to the inside of the truck to contact the nubs. So I had to machine a 1/8 inch shim to go behind the rim to get the ridge where it needs to be. And on one side of the truck I had to file the nubs so they would fit into the channel on the hub. You really have to study how these things work. You can't just slap them on and go!

I was a little skeptical about buying these hubs at first, especially with the cheap price. After Installing them and using them for a few months, I can say that I am fully satisfied with them. They lock and unlock easily, do not stick, and stay locked when you want them locked. I have 31x10.50x15 tires on my ranger and they are aggressive mud tires. I have had the truck in some pretty bad spots since I have installed them and they have not broke, or came unlocked. Before you install, I would recommend to coat internal parts with a light coat of 5w-20 engine oil to make them easy to lock/unlock as grease might foul them up. I have used them in 0 degree temps and they do not stick and are not stiff after doing this.

Overall 4/5 only because the build quality could be higher, but for the price I am completely satisfied and would recommend.

After 3 months the gears became very sloppy and developed a heavy vibration in the front axle. This hub also holds the axle centered in the wheel bearing assembly. Rugged ridge was very good about replacing it, but now six months later, I hit a pothole and the axle started vibrating again , I took off the hub and the center gear had broke off. Took me an hour to get the gear out. Fed up with them I modified the factory hubs to manual, problem solved. Dont even think im going to contact them to get a new one, becuase it was such a pain last time.

my vacuum system auto locking hubs went out, common problem. rather than diagnosing it and fixing the flawed system, went with these. pretty much the only company that makes them for my year truck (98 ranger). ok so i gotta get out and click them on one at a time, but not difficult and gives me piece of mind that the vacuum system wont go out when i need it most. work perfectly. engages front four wheel drive hubs every time. some people have said that they can pop off and get lost. mine have not, nor have they broken. they are made out of plastic inside, wish they were metal, but again, function perfectly and have not broken and i beat the you know what out of my truck. have taken these out on 4 occasions thru gnarly rocky dusty terrain in the socal deserts an mountains. have held up just fine. totally recommend to anyone who needs to fix/replace their vacuum system, or any one who has the vacuum system and wants piece of mind that these will not go out on you when you need 4x4 the most.
