    while I had my hubs out today i noticed that the right side was full of mud and the little ball bearing cap on the outside was disintegrated. I'm guessing that means the hub is shot. can i replace my auto hubs with a set of warn lockouts? if i can is it a straight bolt in or do i need to make other changes?

    thanks, I had someone else say i could, but the source was questionable.
    p.s. remind me to check the torque on my lugs the next time my wheels are off. i just spent 2 hrs waiting for a tow because i'm an idiot!

    That's not going to do you a whole lot of good. Try checking the torque when the wheels are on.:haha:

    everybody's a comic :haha: boy what a surprise that was, at least the wheel stayed on the hub and I was able to get off the road. Now if I only had a lug put the lug wrench back in the truck....
