Sounds like you might have a bad hub. Last winter I had one hub slow to engage in snow and it popped when it engaged, ended up destroying my driver side hub. I ordered some warn premium manual hubs, they just got here today. It seems like this is a fairly common problem with them.

You can get some from ford. But IMO the strength of the aftermarket warns is worth the trouble of having to manually lock them every time. If you decide to stay stock make sure you pull them apart periodically to grease them. It will help them lock in and out easier

Worth every penny and every time you go out and lock em in IMO. I just got back home from a trip and installed them in 10min. I have had them on several other vehicles and they never let me down. Honestly you see them side by side and you can tell how beefy the warns are compared to the fords.

If you do some searching on here lots of people have done the same thing.

If you decide to keep the stockers here is a link on how to lube/clean them.

Welcome to guzzle's 4x4 Autolock Hub Lubrication Maintenance Web Page

It will help with longevity.

Alright here is a question regarding the hubs. How do you tell if you have the automatic style hubs, as there is no print on them at all. There is vacuum style hoses running to the rear of the hub. Also is it normal for the front axles to spin going down the road in 2wd. Thanks for any answers, as I am still trying to figure out all this stuff that is new to me.

IF THERE IS A VACUME LINE YOU HAVE AUTO OVER MANUAL ALOT OF GUYS TAKE THE LINE AND CAP IT OF BECAUSE IT CAN CAUSE PROBLEMS WITH YOUR A/C VENT NOT CHANGING BUT IF YOU DO THIS DONT FORGET TO CAP IT ON THE BACK OF THE KNUCKLE SO NO WATER GETS IN THERE AND DESTROYS YOUR WHEEL BEARINGS
