early 99 dually / warn hubs ?

I want to put the Warn premium hubs on my 1999 F350 dually. The Warn website has a note for the 38826 that says "not for dual wheel applications". I have searched for an hour on this forum- found lots of questions but no real answers about this issue. How do I replace my stock auto-lockers with a manual locking hub?

Thanks in advance...

I think this issue is the fact that the warns are about an inch shorter then the stock hubs, so with the dually wheels up front it will be a long ways in there to turn it. You would have to do it with some long needle nose pliers. I just installed these on my truck in December. Love them, they work so smooth. Subscribing for what happens. If worse come to worse I would call warn and ask, I have heard there customer service is excellent.

I called Warn customer service. He said that 80% of the time with DRW that there is a ring that will not allow the hubs to drop in. So, he suggested I could try it and see if it works. Not only might I be left holding some expensive hardware that I cannot use, but the time issue with replacement would be extended. Anyone out there have direct experience with this?

I hubs must be different on a dually then. Mine fit great. Let me know what happens, would be interested in knowing.

I found this in another forum as a reply to the same question.

I have a DRW 99 as well and installed the warn premium in mine this weekend. Tested them already in the mud and work great. The trick is you have to remove the wheel spacer. It is hour glass shaped so that you cant just slid them in but if you remove the spacer, install them and then put the spacer back on over them it WILL fit. It turned a 15 min job into a 45 min job but it is super easy



And what did you come up with on this?

I have a 2001 DRW and will be doing this shortly as I have the warn hub setting on the bench.
