    I would like to know if the factory GM auto hubs (K5 & Burb)are replaceable with after market manual hubs such as a Warn unit? I am guessing that they are but need to know for sure.

    One of the best, fastest, cheapest mods is to replace your auto hubs with manuals. Search this board and you will find all sorts of debates as to which is best, Warn, Milemarker, Superwinch. I personally love my Warn Premiums. But, I cannot speak for the others as I have never run them.
