    It works!!! I picked up a set of Warn hubs for $79 and installed them today. Everything seems to be working fine. The old hubs were shot, one blew up as I took off the cap(picture the snake-in-a-can gag) and the other hub was missing altogether. The whole job was much easier than I expected, I did it with the tires on and no jacking in under an hour. After that I conquered a small mud hole that kicked my ass last weekend. Thanks to everyone who replied to my previous posts. My next project will be passing that new goddamn NJ emissions test, that is a whole other matter...

    The emissions chk, hmmmm I got my old 77 through by raising the octane levels, ran almost empty then put 5 gallons of 102 aviation gas in, and shoved a bottle of 14 octane booster in on that, the first trip through without all that it failed, second trip through with the hot gas it breezed through, soon as I got the inspection done, I went down the street and filled up on low octane to balance it back out..WK

    I removed an old set of manual Warn hubs. They had 6 holes just like the new ones. I didn't get a conversion kit. I didn't even need to install the snap ring on the axle, popped the hubs in and that was it. I had no idea how cool 4wd is, the truck really launches in 4 low.
