Default hub conversions for a 2001 and up

Does anyone know of a hub conversion from auto lock to manual lock for an 01 and up dana 35 full float axle. I have the composite hubs that the auto parts stores ask an arm and a leg for and because I am running oversized tires I keep wearing the wheel bearings out. Any help would be appreciated.

The only way to get manual hubs on an 01+ is to get the CV's and wheel bearing units from a 98-00 ranger and then get the AVM hubs as well.

it's a pointless swap in both the strength and dependability departments!




I would also consider the ease of use department too, but it makes me sound like a lazy ass. lol. Not having to get out of the truck is a bonus of having strength and reliability on the ends of those CV's.

Also, you probably keep wearing hte bearings out thanks to always buying cheap, crappy ass, chinese shit bearings.


Timkin OEM FTW! I got 120k out of my stock Timkin bearings......half that was with 33"+ tires and steel wheels.
