    Is it as simple as buying the hubs from warn and slapping them in, or do I need some sort of conversion kit? And how do I know if mine are internal or external? The cap on the flange hammers in flush... /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    Yours are internal, just pull out the flanges and install the locking hubs. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Yep, just pry off the cover, pull the snaprings and remove the flange....I also believe there is some type of spacer you have to remove also before installing the lock-outs.

    Don't throw away the drive flanges. They make great trail spares in the event of an exploded locking hub. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    You jackasses should have both been at Hank's 4x4 Jamboree instead of playing with drive flanges.

    Farm & Fleet carries D60 hubs IN STOCK.
