Auto locking hubs

How much does a new set of auto locking hubs cost? And where can I buy them? I know everyone thinks the Warn hubs are the best. My truck came with Warn hubs, but I don't like the idea of getting out of the truck to lock it in. Yeah, I'm lazy. No, not really, but if I'm on the highway and come into some slick stuff, I want to be able to get traction quick.

I have warn hubs. In the winter time I just leave them locked in. Then if I need 4wd while driving I flip the switch.

If your on slick surface and you loose traction it is too late anyways.

If you really want auto locking hubs. I will look and see if I still have all the parts to mine. If I do I will pm you, if you want them you can have them. You just have to pay for shipping.

BTW I went to Warns for a reason. They don't fail, they don't rely on a vaccuum system to engage them. They don't rely on a vaccuum system to keep them locked in.

My hubs are still good, they need to be cleaned. But I think I may have everything to reinstall them.

But you will need to get all the new seals so they work. Which there is a big seal that costs around 40 dollars each. You will need two one for each side. This seal is the one that seals up the vaccuum system. If it is bad the auto hubs will not work.

That is why I switched to Warns those seals went bad on my truck. So I installed warns instead of buying the new seals.

You can't get Warn Hubs for your truck Tank.

Well I do not have the lock rings for the hubs. But I have everything else. They need to be cleaned and lubricated. But should work, they worked when I pulled them off the truck.
