    What do you mean by external locking hubs :o ...AKA Manually locking hubs?... Cuz I have those. I got a 10b with 6 lug, with Man. locking hubs... I plan on doing the swap in the near future... If these will work in doing that then I want them! They in decent condition?.. How do the lugs look?

    well unfortunately these wheel hubs are designed for a different kind of manual hub than the ones you have. the kind you have are "internal" locking hubs. in order to use these wheel hubs you would need to purchase "external" locking hubs.

    im not 100% sure of the difference, but do a search on here and i think ull find the answer. if you are still interested let me know

    the bolts that attach the manual hub to the wheel hub have 6 small bolts for internal, and there are 6 large bolts for external.

    im looking for a pic so you can see the difference

    um...im not really sure. i was going to use these to do my 8 lug conversion, but i had just bought new internal hubs so i ended up not doing it. now to make matters worse im sellin the truck.

    i think they are basically the same, just that externals are the older style. you can see the model years on 4wheelparts.com, up to 76 3/4 ton.

    with external hubs they will bolt right up.
