  1. Manual hubs vs. live axle - worth it?

    Hi everybody, I'm halfway through converting my 2002 B3000 Dual Sport (Edge) to 4x4, and it's time to decide on a hub setup. I was originally planning on using the '98-2000 CV axles and buying the Rugged Ridge manual hubs for them, but am also drawn to the simplicity and (relative) strength of...
  2. 1996 Ranger manual hubs - remove question,socket.

    I have a 96 Ranger with factory manual hubs. I need to remove the brake rotors. The question: Is the locknut socket (Ford T86T 1197 A ,4 pin) required to remove the hubs? I can't find any definitive information indicating it is required for the 96 model....I suspect it is.
  3. 2000 Ford Ranger hub / wheel bearing help!

    If you have a bad wheel bearing on the front drivers side, can it cause the 4wd to fail? Both front brakes were just replaced. Thanks in advance, Amarissa
  4. 98-99 4wd wheel bearings

  5. 4x4 hub question

    So the bearings are going on the front end of my 2000 ford ranger 4x4. I just order new hubs/w bearing but I am not sure if I got the right parts. This is what I ordered from rock auto http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/moreinfo.php?pk=4287453&cc=1362798 I guess I really wanted to know if those...

    4wheelingplus.com problems

  7. Bang/Pop/Lurch on Engine Braking

    Ok, first off, this is my girlfriend's truck. It's a 2004 Ranger with suicide doors. Her driveway is steep and rocky so every time she goes up or down, she puts the truck in 4-low. It has started to bang and lurch forward a foot or so and then catch itself. To begin with, it only happened...
  8. 97 Ranger 4wd Rotors?

    Hey Guys & Gals, My 97 ranger 4wd w/ manual locking hubs...front rotors are beyond WARPED! I am under the impression that to replace the rotors you have to take the whole hub apart because of the Manual locking hubs? If thats the case how hard is it to do?

  11. Dana 35 manual hubs

    Did the Dana 35 on rangers or explorers ever come stock with manual hub lockouts? I've got a D28 with manual hub lockouts and want to upgrade to a D35. The only D35's I've seen are auto hubs (which isn't what I want). Thanks. -akx
  12. AVM hub swap, will not keep axles locked in 4x4

    I have a 2000 Ranger w/ the PVH 4x4 system, the truck was made before 06/2000 so it does not have the live axle set up. It also has 4 wheel abs, fyi. In December I changed both hub bearing assemblies, left and right sides. While I was changing the hub bearing assemblies I noticed the steel...
