    The exact same thing just happened to me. I ended up jacking up the front end and locking the hubs to see which one didn't engage. The plastic knob on the driverside ended up being stripped out a bit. Instead of try and fix it, I just bought a set of Warn premiums. Now I don't have to worry about it.

    For a quick fix though, you might be able to take the hub off, engage it and then re-install it. Not ideal, but it will probably get you through winter.

    I got them for just under $200 shipped on e-bay. 38826 is the part number I believe.

    It's worth it just to spring for the Warn hubs. You could disassemble your existing ones and possibly fix them, but the Warns are SO much better.

    If you've got stock 30-spline outers, you could probably score a set cheap from one of the rockcrawler guys who've upgraded to 35-spline outers. Check Pirate.

    Got a pic of your "stock" hubs? If I like what I see in the pic, I will buy them from you for parts.

    Fixed the truck today. The slidding ring was all gummed up and would not engage. It works now! Going to change hubs this spring anyway. So thatK30guy, If you still want them, If you can wait, they work.
