    next time you go to Auto Zone look at the rubber mats they have on the check out counters and there you will see a 93-96 Ford Baja pickup if you look closely you will see locking hubs up front however if you look closer you will also notice its a 2 wheel drive
    just thought id share that with you
    PS and yea i know the 2 wheel drive pickups have hubs that look like locking hubs but these ARE locking hubs

    Quite a few class 8 Fords use 4 wheel drive hubs/rotors for the bigger bearings, and leave the locking or auto hub on as a dust cap. That's probably it - Autozone plasters Dave Ashley's old truck on everything.

    If it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all[​IMG]

    thanx for the info Pugsley, i didn't know that, but why invest in locking hubs when they come with automatic hubs and i know that truck isnt a 3/4 or full ton which are the ones that did come with manual hubs............aw who cares its a FORD any ways

    They actually put manuals on 1/2 tons until 96 - for a $60 credit. And I'm sure that Ford was only too happy to give them everything they wanted free of charge[​IMG]

    Hey's not the only one............And there's a very good reason why. I'm into dez racing and fact is, the cheapest way to get into a truck is a Ford. Last year, I pitted for a team I know, they run Class 8 in a '69 Ford with a a stepside bed. There's something cool about a 2wd truck that sits as high as my stock K5. Before the race, they gave me a spin around the mountain, at race speeds. Strapping into a 500 horsepower BB, 2wd truck and running through 2-3 ft whoops at 60mph is one of the wildest things I've done, and I wasn't driving.
