Hubs Question

Hi All:

I've been reading the stickies on the auto-hub locking woes. I'm getting ready to tear into mine, and they are sticking. Won't un-lock reliably after engaging.

I have been trying to research the Warn and Mile-Marker options in case I need to go full manual. I see the Warn hubs exclude DRW applications. Since I have an '03 F-350 DRW, that concerns me.

Any info as to why? What would be the best manual-hub solution for my dually?

Most likely any exclusion would be due to the hub adapter on a DRW interfering with the replacement manual hub. This is one of those cases where a couple of emails to hub manufacturers could shed some light on your situation and possible result in you finding a solution without trial and error.

Yes, I had inquired of them (Warn).

I just received the following response: "Sorry, we do not offer any for that application at this time."

Seems kind of odd in this day and age. Guess I'll have to make do with the factory units.
