    I thank my auto hubs are dead last night I was out looking at some deer and rideing around my buds farm we went down along the power lines that run true his farm we got to a bottom with a little mud in it so I put it in 4WD and go the frount tires go true then the back just set down in the mud a spin and the frount dont spin at all but you could here the frount shaft moveing so I guess it is the auto hubs.

    how do I tell if it is the auto hubs?

    are they hare to swap out with manuls?

    and sould I use mile marker or warn?

    thanks

    Your autohubs have to rotate to engage. If your already stuck in the muck, they won't do you much good if the front tires can't move to engage them.

    Call my rig an SUV... And I'll tear your lungs out.

    I put it in 4WD about 10 yards form the mud hole to give them time to engage

    Well, all I can say is mabey give them more room to engage. I know mine are a little finiky, I usually have to back up quite a ways to disengage them, but haven't had any trouble with engaging.

    Junk them and get manual hubs. Easy to install. I have used warn premium, milemarker, and superwich. Never any problems out of them.
