I have them... sitting on my dresser. Haha... I'm installing them this weekend. I'll let you know for sure. I know there's a couple guys who have them though. Never heard anything bad about them.

They work well.

However i never had problems with the PVH stuff. Only downside is having to get out to lock them in.

I left them locked in for a week and I got 11mpg. Winter sucks for mileage.


Someone over on RPS ordered a set from Tellico4x4 a week ago or so.

I placed my order at the beginning of January. ETA was 2nd week of March, but they just arrived at the end of January one night. Was definitely a pleasant surprise. I went through Tellico4x4 as well.

Yeah I still really need a single or hell even two hubs. Someone called for my Ranger to buy it with cash in hand...I just need to get it fixed first.

Sniper did you install the AVM's? I need some stock hubs yo! lol

Edit - Hell you could sell Kosmo one and me the other. That way we are both happy.

PS - I blew out my pass side one also Kosmo. Weird.

Well if I were you, I'd order them now and hope they do come in on time.

I'm still waiting for Sniper to let me know if he got his on or not so I can snag one of his stockers.

PM'ed ya Wertzy. Just let me know if that's fine. I'll get it out before Friday if it is.

Sorry about not letting ya know sooner. I did get the AVM's installed. Had a small hang up as when I first tried to engage the 4wD it didn't work. Took the truck in... jacked it all up... and looked everything over. Tried it and worked fine. So my 4x4 is working again. AVM are holding strong... and they don't even look that bad with my wheels.

EDIT: I think Wertzy wants both Kosmo. Sorry. Picture below of the damage I did to the first hub just for giggles I guess. However, I broke some of the little clips things on the first one I did. I think it will still work fine, but there's picture below of what I did.

Eh.. a little late.. but I have them too. Have for a while. Got some hard wheeling miles on them. They still lock and unlock soo smoothly its unbelivable. AVM is definatly a very high quality company.

15001.70 - Locking Hub Set For 1997-00 Ford Ranger $104.95
Thats the price off tellico4x4 as of today.

Currently baseline4x4 Has them for 174.95

I totally understand your concern of availability. SniperX103 got a set at the end of January as he posted above. So im assuming the have these in stock.
