My '96 Explorer has 65K miles and does not "bang" into gear. I'd say there
is something wrong...

Subject: FTE Small - Auto hubs for sale

I will have three auto hubs for sale all good condition and cleaned for $80
for all three. One came out of a 90 ranger with a D28 the others came from a
93 explorer with a D35 and about 51,000 highway miles.
Will sell all for $80 plus shipping or $35 each plus shipping.
I have been told that D28 hubs should also fit D35 and vise versa.

thanks

They should still pull off if you really want to, though, right?

How far apart are the holes? Could a Ford Oval Emblem cover that up?
Although I realize the whole point was to remove the badges altogether...

Yeah, you would just either have to cover the holes with something else,
or
have them welded up, and painted. To answer another question, I don't
remember how far apart the holes are, but they make some pretty big Ford
ovals if you want to go that route:) I covered the hole from the ford
emblem on the hatch of my Mustang with one of the 5.0 emblems I took
off the side.

Yeah, I might be interested in replacing the "Ranger" badge with the blue
oval.
Does anyone know??

Subject: FTE Small - ADMIN: Peggy

Hi All,

I would like to make a request. Please talk to your
fellow truckers and find out about auto shows in your
area. They don't have to be Ford specific or truck
specific. If you have a form or flier, great! You
can fax it to me at (770) 806-1955 or mail it to me at
PO Box 422, Lilburn GA, 30048. If all you have is a rumor
contact me anyway. I've learned of five shows in the
last 24 hours, just by calling for info on one show.

If you are wondering what this is for, Ken and I would
like to meet more of you, and we know that Pigeon Forge
is a long way for some of you. So we are going to try
to see if we can go to some of these other shows around
the country.

I appreciate any help you can give.

Sincerely,
Peggy Payne FTEI

Don't know of any shows in the San Diego area upcoming, but I bet that the
various off road shops and such probably do. We have 4 Wheel Parts
Wholesalers, Dick Cepek, Off Road Warehouse, and Four Wheel Direct as the
big shops in the San Diego/El Cajon area.
I'd love it if a Ford Truck/Ranger show took place near by. Seems like
there's more of those out in the midwest and the east, and not too much down
here.
People build prerunners here, and I'd be all over a show that featured
those...

up emblums..I have one on mine takes about 25 minutes to put in and look
cool as well you know.

Subject: FTE Small - Re: manual hubs

Dave,
Give 4Wheel Part Wholesalers a call. I just talked to them about
the same issue and they told me I could get the Warn hubs and
the convertion kit all for $185.00, seems fair to me. As far as I
know Warn is the only company making replacement hubs for the
rangers, but I could be wrong. The guy I talked to said if you can
change a tire you can do the conversion in about an hour or so. As
for the Auburn, from what I know they are VERY strong for a limited
slip, much closer to the strength of an "easy locker" but without
the down sides. Only problem is that you will be replacing the
carrier when you do it. So make sure you do the ring and pinion
swap at the same time so you don't pay for the same labor twice.
Good luck and let us know how it goes.
