The factory one was just So Expensive compared to the eBay one that, once I saw how quickly I could change one, I "cheaped-out"

They said they used Timken bearings and came with a lifetime guarantee. That was 2 yrs ago, I have no complaints... In fact, the ABS sensor went bad and they, true to their word, sent me a replacement (the entire hub!) last year.

I don't see the reason for paying $400 when a, perfectly good, replacement is available for $120.

I was just in NAPA this morning asking about the wheel hub assembly for my 2000 F350 4x4 and Chuck told me $297 new from him. My ABS sensor is out of mine but with 213,XXX miles I can stand to replace both probably.

yes i do, but also ford trucks come stock from the factory with warn hubs already on the truck so why do anything really after market just stick with what you have, and the premium means they are just a little bit more heavy duty but i just did that cause i do play in mud every now and then and need that extra power and non-slip.

I'm confused too

But, I think the Original Poster said "wheel hub" so I was referring to the hub bearing assembly (that's why I talked about Timken bearings), and not the "Lock-out" you were....
