4x4 front hub replacement

I have a 2001 with the backup manual hubs on it, but they will not turn, and the right front one wants to stay locked in. What is the best solution to fix this? Replace with aftermarket hubs? if so, anybody know which brand is the best way to go, and best place to buy them?
Thanks for any and all help.................Jason

I have a 2000 superduty with manual lockers (stock), and I can say "they suck". Left me at the gravel boat launch with mashed plastic crapola parts in the lockers. Limped out and made her home to find about 50000000 little pieces of plastic in the locker, or what was left of the locker. Replaced with WARN lockers this am. Will let you know how they work out. Super simple instal.

4*4front hub

www.guzzle.com has a write up on the job.I wish the bozo that I bought this truck would of left the hubs alone.
I have warn and they have come apart on me twice.The wheel shaking was enought to get my attension.To bad both times I was about 100 miles out and away from my tools.
I also miss the flip of the switch in the cab.With warn thats gone.The repair is simple and cheep.

Unless your going rock climing,stay stock. just my opinion.

Why does it say on the warn site that their hubs will not fit a DRW? I need new hubs and am wondering if his is acurate?

yes they will not fit....

for some reason the Hubs on the DRW are a lil smaller width wise... i have heard of people taking the warn hubs and having it machined down a bit to make them fit...

So are there any aftermarket hubs for my truck? How hard would it be to machine down?
