You remove the center part of the hub and theres a plastic module with a clip and a spring...i think u remove the clip and then the hubs are always locked it takes like 10mins to do.....i did it to mine years ago before i got the manual lockouts. And they are only like $140.

my ford ranger factory 4x4 "instruction" manual say's "a loud clunk may occur when engaging the 4wd system while in motion. This is normal, as it is the front differential speeding up to match the speed of the rear differential"

Glenn, do you have to back up to disengage 4x4? or can you engage/disengage at any time, stopped or "on the fly" like my ranger?
