have u checked pricing ?

all the bearings and ETC have to Be replaced

I think Dynatrac has the best rep and original Idea

i just keep My OEM stuff working with a little PM.

I think you found the only 2 options other than the just Auto version of the PLH hubs We have now just without the Auto feature


and for a FYI our OEM hubs are made By WARN

I don't know what is wrong with your truck but the actual hubs are three screws and a 20 minute job to swap ,, the Hubs can't be more than 400 + for the set

I imagine you have seals and a vacuum loss issue for that kind of money ?

and since the Auto hubs also work as manuals ,, why spend the coin ?

Do you have a parts breakdown as the only problem I have is when it gets below say 20 below zero, when I go from 4 x 4 high to 2 wheel high one hub doesn't disengage and the diff spiders spin like crazy

Looked on e-bay, hubs are about $150 each, may find used or just stay in 4X4 on cold days. Is there maintenance that I can do to the hubs, is it just the three screws to remove?
