I know understand why people always rant about auto locking hubs /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif My truck has been making some bad sounding noises from the front axle lately. I have an 83 Jimmy with auto hubs. I was thinking the hubs are shot and that was causing the whine. Well, regardless of whether or not it's the whine the hubs are definently shot. Baltimore got a bunch of snow today so I was out and about yanking people out of drifts. My @!@#$%% truck kept putting itself in 2wd. Rather embarassing to be pulling someone then all of the sudden find yourself in 2wd and stuck hehe. Sooo.. how much $$ am I looking at to convert the front to manual? Thanks.
