Four Wheel Drive Hub Advice

So due to an accident virtually the entire driver side of my truck was replaced(fener, rotor, hub, caliper and locking hub). So one they replaced my four wheel drive hub they replaced it with and OEM Free or Lock Hub instead of the Auto or Lock Hub. Id rather have the Free or Lock and want another to replace my passenger side. I was wondering if i should pony up and buy the OEM hub for about $220 on ebay of if another aftermarket hub would be good in general and work for just one side. Thanks in advance.

Use aftermarket. Much cheaper and better quality IMO. Use warn or mile marker.

Mile Marker are Strong and Very Dependable... I bought mine off of ebay for $110...

The price has actually dropped since I bought mine...

I want to buy the hubs you talk about. I just have a couple of questions. On the E Bay link if i select 2001 f250 XLT it says not compatible. Also do i need some sort of conversion kit or will this kit come with some type of snap ring that i can just pop em in. I need to get these before snow so any help is appreciated. Thanks!

I don't know about the other brands, but I do know that with the Warn hubs, you don't need a conversion kit. Also, don't forget to plug your vacuum lines going to the front hubs, or your heater will be stuck on defrost when you stick it in 4x4.

Only if your vacuum system leaks. My lines are still hooked up to the axle and I have no problems. I have 239,000 miles on my truck and 100,000 of those have been with warn hubs installed.

Frank mine fit without an issue... Here is the reply that I received from Mile marker...

Hello Lonnie

The 449s/s are the only hubs we have for your truck. The kit pt# 95-32721 is what you will need if your alxe has a wheel nut bearing, if none then just the hub.

I really don't know anything about this wheel nut bearing?
