Auto to manual front hubs

i like to change my front hubs but not sure what i need in order to do this. I need to do this so i can put a locker up front. I have looked for conversions kits but have come up empty handed, just like someone to point me in the right direction.

No one makes manual hubs for your year since it uses a live axle. You can convert it to use them by getting the wheel bearings and CV shafts from a 98 to 2000 truck though. But you can put a locker up front without manual hubs. I have one in my truck and it only locks when the 4wd is engaged.
