My truck (in signature line) had the original auto/manual hubs frozen in position. I just replaced them with Mile Marker 449 S/S stainless steel all manual hubs. (seems like these and the warn version are what a lot of guys on here switch over to. I ordered them online through advance auto parts, They had a %15 off an online purchase deal that was the cheapest I could find. It was like $160 for the Dana 60 axle version plus the 15% off that, and was free delivery or pickup, plus if you fill out their membership thing you get a $25 email coupon of some kind... aka a great deal.

As a side note.. that is $160 for a pair in a single box. I accidentally ordered two boxes as I read it like it was a single hub per box. They went on super easy (don't even have to remove the wheels) and seem like a solid 1/4 turn set up. As a small minus, they don't stick out as far as the original crap-o-matics so they set back a bit from the lug nut dust covers.

Cool thanks. I actually found some of those this morning on JC Whitney's site but wasn't sure if they were any good. Description sounded like they would be a good one.

I run Warn premium on my 00 and Dynatrac on my 95, both 35 spline. The Warn lockouts take a full turn and the Dynatrac a 1/4 turn, the extra leverage makes the Warn's easier to turn. On the plus side, the Dynatrac lockouts barely stick out compared to the Warns and they fail in the locked position.

Will the Dana 50 and Dana 60 take the same locking hub? My 99 has the 50 and I just realised you said yours was a 60. Thanks!

According to the specs from Mile-Marker, the 449 S/S will fit Dana 50 and 60 on fords from 1990-2004, see details here

Mile Marker - Stainless Steel Dana 60 - Chevrolet/GMC - Chrysler/Plymouth/Dodge

As long as you have the right splines, I'd think you're okay.
