took the bronk to work today and for the first time i had probs with the auto hubs . i was trying to pull the 2 company plow trucks(brand new f-250's) out of a small revine when the hubs started to slip on me :banghead . the good news is my company is replacing them for me with manuals:thumbup and possibly replacing my bumper as it was damaged :toothless in the pulling of the trucks ..

22inches! had alot of fun out on the unplowed streets today. besides a few jeepers an a sweet 71 gmc P/U with a plow i had the street all to my self.:thumbup

my truck had a good day. it looked mean as hell with a icicle beard around the bumper an grill. Also got to help two people, a 2005 police explorer stuck in 4lo and only spinning one tire :rofl: an a lexus suv....... those things suck :duh

stupid parts guy ordered them instead of the premiums :banghead
anything is better than autohubs. they died on this truck, my last fsb, and the 91 explorer i had. junk.

It's funny to hear all these stories about auto hubs. They never really gave me a problem at all...and i never serviced them. :shrug

I have the 1/4 turns on my truck and don't mind them at all. Actually alot easier to turn then the premiums. The "bing" factor isn't there though. :toothless

you got lucky with them i guess. those explorer hubs were a whole new pos. they fell apart when you took off the tire. :banghead

my 86 has the old factory red plastic manual hubs. the warn regulars (black plastic center) on my 95 seem to be just like them :shrug

well i got a set of manual hub locks, on a parts bronco looking to make a few dollars out of what can be scrapped, if u r looking for a set? i love the manuals myself, becasue if ur planning on getting stuck, u will know to lock ur hubs before u go in, so y have hte easy button, that always messes up and there is no second choice well send me a PM if you are intrested, really it would be pick up only to, i cant ship i hate shipping did it a few times, and i always got ripped..
