u can try to pull them and lube them but you can't completely disassemble them

so some spray lube and grease may or may not work

What did you find out? My 2008 F250 hubs are hard to turn the knob by hand. Doable but not easy.

This should be regular maintenance if you are off road in deep muck or have regular poor road conditions.

Taking the hub out and lubricating it? The 2008 F250 is a new truck to me so this is all brand new. Please clarify what is required. Thank you.

Yes, in my experience especially if the hubs are submerged you should pull them off and clean/grease them.

I'm assuming all the hubs are the same if they have the auto/manual lock, then its an easy procedure. this vid is pretty good:


I do mine while I wait for the oil to drain and during front end greasing.
