Locking hubs

I need new locking hubs on my 04 F250. Are there any other options besides the vacuum hubs on it now? Can I get a standard locking hub like the warn hubs as mine are only held in with a spring clip and the warn hubs use bolts?

Looking to see how everyone likes their warn hubs as well. Having problem with my factory locking on their own. Looking into the Warn hubs.

I switched my vacuum auto hubs over to the Warn Manual hubs about 5k miles ago. I plugged the vacuum line at the frame and capped the other end at the hub. They are holding up really well and I dont seem to have any vacuum issues so far. They do sit in a little further than the stick hubs, but not to far you can't get to them.
I got mine from amazon, they were 207 shipped when I bought them. Looks like the price has gone up now though.

So if you use these every time you want to use 4WD you need to lock them in by hand?

manual hubs are just that, full manual hubs so you get out and turn the dials on both sides.

I have the milemarker stainless steel hubs and like them. I don't use the truck for rockcrawling so they i'm not worried about them possibly not being the strongest hub you can get.

X2 on the mile markers they replaced my warns when one failed. They help me be undefeated in the truck pulls at trucks gone wild
