    When did Chevy start putting auto locking hubs on their K5s. I was looking at an 87 K5 and the thing had auto locking hubs. the "manual" says that it should have an NP208 case in it....?
    Thanks

    Mine is a '84 and it has auto hubs. As far as when they started...I really don't know.

    Why are you concerned that the rig has a 208 AND auto locking hubs? That was factory issue for a long time. My 84 has that combo, too.

    Yeah, my 84 has auto hubs and a 208. Works fine, no problems with it.

    NP208's came out in 81'. 80' was the last year for the NP205's in K5's. So, 81' is the first year with auto locking hubs too.

    When I first bought my 90 with NP241 it had auto hubs, I now run the Warn manual hubs.
