Mod: Pulse Vacuum Hub Fix
(inspired by article at TheRangerStation
Please direct all questions and comments to the author.
This mod will bypass the vacuum system on 98’ to 00’ 4wd Rangers there by making them full time live axles similar to the system on 00 ½’ and newer Rangers.
- Two flat head screwdrivers
First step is to remove the lug cover on the wheel.
Next take two flat head screwdrivers and insert them into the indented tabs on the hub. Take it and press in and turn to the left and the same time. The cap will turn a small amount left and unhook.
Under the cap is a black rubber seal. Remove this.
Next, under the rubber cap is a white “locking mechanism”
Take out that white “locking mechanism” and separate the two sides. Inside of the “mechanism” is a small metal clip.
Take your pliers and remove this metal clip from the “mechanism”
Now reinstall in the reverse order.
Do the other side!
Your axles are now locked, just like the new live axle set up!
