    If I know an answer, I'll share it with people who are just looking to learn. I have been around these trucks basically since they were new, I had a buddy who had a 73 Camper Special when we were in high school and I bought my first dent in '81 ('77 1/2 F150 Flareside 4x4 SWB wish I still had it) and have worked on a bunch of them in the course of my jobs and my own trucks. so yeah I know a little bit about them. But still I continue to learn things on here that I didnt know..............Later..........BTW I have some stock hub pieces so if you just need replacement parts, Let me know.......I'd let em go pretty cheap.....

    I agree with you on some of the other forums..........They act like they dont want to help anyone out...........Ive belonged to several Harley forums and they are especially bad. I havent been on it in a long time but one that I did like was V-twin.......They helped me out a lot on choosing heads, cams etc for my '03 Night Train build. Might want to check them out, hopefully they havent changed. There are a few snooty Aholes on FTE too but for the most part, everyone on here is happy to share their knowledge. Feel free to PM me or post on the forum anytime.

    They eliminate the snap ring on the inside of the axle which allows the shaft to float in the hub. Directions weren't real clear on that and I installed the snap ring but then couldnt get the axle shaft shoved thru the hub far enough to get the outer snap ring on. So I called their 800 # and got it figured out. Not a big issue. I dont know that it matters which hub you use..........I have done some pretty serious fourwheeling in the past and have NEVER blown up a hub of any brand, stock or aftermarket. I think the main thing with any of them is to make sure the seals seal and to keep them serviced. I always repack my front bearings every 30,000 miles and more often than that if they have been submerged or if Ive been running a lot of mud; and when I do, I always clean and lube the locking hubs as well. If the grease gets gritty or sticky, the splines will not fully engage and when you apply some torque.........BANG..........

    First off thanks for the compliment on the truck. I call her "Pebbles" after Pebbles Flintstone cause she's such a cute little carrot top and She'd probably be about 49 or 50 years old now but would still be smokin' hot!!!!!! LOL I personally run any good quality 85W140 in my NP435, NP 205 and both the front and rear differentials. As far as locking hubs go, I guess a lot of that depends on whether you want the stock looking ones or just a good quality replacement. I dont really care much about stock looking hubs so I went with Superwinch. They are a high quality all metal hub. I was going to go with Warn Premiums which are also an all metal hub, but couldn't see the sense in paying almost $100 more for the Warns. If I remember right I only paid just under $100 for the Superwinches and have had no problems with them except for having to call their tech line to figure out their crappy directions.
