    [​IMG] What style is better ??? Internal, or External ???? The external look better to me, but I don't have much experence with these. I did have the externals on my first K5, but never used the other style.

    The External Hubs....aren't really Wheeling Friendly....
    My internals take a beating!!!
    The only way you can get away with those is....
    if you don't have much wheel backspacing....
    That way the hubs are more protected... /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Internal, w/ the external you need to keep an eye on the mount bolts working out. Just ask a Jeep guy, because I don't understand /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif Realy you need to use the style lockout that goes w/ the hub (cast part) that you have.

    Depends on which hub you have. They fit different design hubs.

    I had a set of external hubs on my old 72 chevy truck and I never had a problem with the bolts working themselves out and I wheeled the crap out of that thing.

    Ok, good for you, but it is a common problem w/ the old external hubs. That is why many people use studs & nuts not bolts on them. Its also why Warn sell an internal hub conversion.
