The hub style 4x4 wasn't fords best idea. High heats and heavy use wore down the parts a lot. but yea, they don't stand up to a lot of abuse, they're prone to break with heavy wheeling.

Its ok to wheel, but i'd carry a spare outer hub just in case. Its a decent style for Mud/Snow. but when tires start slipping, the hubs start breaking.

Mine hasn't let me down yet, I haven't don't any super hard wheeling, but I've taken off through a field or two, just to prove i can. if you take care of it and keep it greased you should be ok.

ok from what i read you are getting tons of info that is incorrect

since i have a 94 let me start here.

do you have the stock auto locking hubs or do u have after market manual hubs (the ones you have to get out and turn to lock them)

if you have the auto hubs you need to replace them

you will need the conversion kit and the manual hubs


the conversion kit is just new wheel bearing nuts. You will need a Dana 44 sock to tighten the new nuts. you will need a dana 35 socket to take the stock axle nuts off.

if you want more info about them pm me i know the ttb front end pretty well

What? you make no sense.
Of course he has Factory Automatics, did you look at the pictures he had?
If the inside of the Hubs are good, meaning they still spin then there is ZERO reason to replace them.
like he said earlier, he thinks his Cam assembly is broke.
if he gets a bigger bearing nut, it won't fit on the shaft. You don't need a bearing but socket, you can make do with a big pair of channel locks. i've done it on the side of the road before.
Source: I have a 94 too.

ok well the conversion axle nuts are designed for the dana 35 axle shaft they just take the dana 44 axle nut socket. idk how you are tightening the axle nuts to the correct torque spec with a pair of channel locks

I've never torque spec'd them. front wheels won't turn if i do.
just go until the wheel is got some drag, then back it off a touch.
FWIW. I do have a bearing socket kit, I did the Channel Lock deal on the side of the road, about 3 hours from my garage.

you aren't torquing them correctly if you are torquing them to spec and cant turn the wheel.

they're close enough. wheel still spins.
Bearings get ate within a year anyways. TTB trucks are notorious for it.

i have put one set on each side in 3 years and im not easy on my truck.


but anyway

if it was me i wouldnt mess around with the stock auto hubs there are garbage IMO.

get yourself a set of warn manual hubs and never worry if your hubs are going to engage. the autos will fail the time when you really need them. Trust me i know lol
