    The locking ones are just that. Locking and unlocking by turning a knob on the outside. The Ones with now knob are called flanges. They are basically a gear which engage the axleshaft and the hub all the time and never allows them to move indepentenly. The flanges just have a cover over the hub so that dirt and water doesn't get into your bearings.

    YUP! /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif Not very practical for a dual purpose truck but great for a trali only rig.

    NOt on a drive flange. If you want to be able to lock and unlock you need to get the hubs for it.

    All you need to do is remove your Drive flanges send them to me and then go buy yourself some locking hubs and install them. /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    Or you an just throw them in your spare parts box and when your hubs break you can still throw them in on the trail and go on your merry way.
