Yeah, I recognize most of that stuff. My old 94 Ranger had that stuff because I personally put some of it in when it was two years old, and the crappy centrifugal hubs became unreliable and I replaced them with Warns. The larger rings amount to nothing more than two jamnuts, the two parts to the right of them are OEM Ford reused from the OEM centrifugal hub install (splined washer and a snapring), and the pic is so blurry that I can't tell what's to the left. But you will need a washer against the wheel bearing. And IIRC,I *think* I used a couple of washers and a thrust bearing assy (salved from the Ford centrifugal hub hardware) in between the washers, but I can't recall 4sure. Those goofy notched jamnuts that you've got and I once had, those are from Spicer and they are best serviced by using a spanner wrench; yes, if you use a hammer and chisel or whatever to tighten them you can break them. I bought the Spicer jamnuts (they may have a fancier name, but that's the function they serve) at a 4x4 supply wholesaler where I live, a pre Central4wd.com type of place, the rest is OEM Ford as best as I can tell.

I don't know what Ford used back in 94 for their manual hub installation hardware (a standard feature but delete during order item to save a whopping $100 bill), but when I bought the Warns I had to cook up an assembly hardware package, and that's where those two Spicer jamnuts came into the pic. A Ford IPC will show the build for a centrifugal hub setup. In a nutshell, Ford for some of it, aftermarket (Spicer) for jamnuts.

You have a C-clip, A Jam nut. The rest is whats left of your Cam assembly.
Like Bill said, tons of guys switch over to Manual hubs, but that requires an Adapter kit.
I've neglected to switch over to manuals yet because my automatics haven't broken.

In all honesty,if you haven't noticed any signs of the hubs going out I wouldn't bother switching yet. I take my truck wheeling often and I am hard on it when I do, haven't had any issues as of yet. Only thing mine started doing is being stubborn with unlocking, which I assume is just dirt.

Warns are a catalog thing. but sometimes you get lucky at the JY. I scored mine from the junkyard, truck was just set on the blocks, I saw that it had manual lockers (i had originally went in for like a switch or something) I had my buddy sit on the truck while i went to my truck and got some more tools. The Warns i pulled off looked like they had JUST been put on. full of good, clean grease and the hubs themselves were nice and shiny.
They're going on when i break the set of automatics on there now.

Check this link out, Should start your search for a decent set of Manual Lockers.

Pepboys can get these manual hubs, btw. They're 200 bucks plus 50 bucks for the conversion kit.

Back in 94, electronic transfer case and "auto" hubs were standard, but if you ordered or if the dealer did it, you could do a delete them and go manual, and save a whole $100. People are lazy, so the dealers in the area where I lived rarely put a manual setup truck on their lot, and when they did, it was a stripper vehicle, clearly destined to be bought by the "value conscious" shopper. I never have had a OEM manual hub and a Warn in front of me at the same time, but it would come as no surprise to me if they just happened to be the same thing.

I jettisoned mine early on because they were flaky about releasing and I couldn't cure it, short of buying a new hub. Kinda hard on the axle with one hub engaged and the other released. I think Ford wanted $300 for a stupid hub. Ouch, screw that. Finally, one day I went to use 4X, it engaged, then after driving a bit I hit the gas hard. Bam, and that was it. The Warns were a cost effective solution, and they don't break at inconvenient times.
