I don't believe you can get manual hubs for your truck since its a live axle.

Not completely true.

He can swap the wheel bearings and half shafts to run a PVH setup.

If you can go from PVH to live axle, then you can go live axle to PVH.


Its going to cost about the same 600 ish for new parts PLUS the AVM's.

ok my turn, will they work on my 98 4x4? my 4 wheel drive stopped working a couple weeks ago and everyone i've talked to says the problem is my pulse vacuum hubs, one guy showed me a how to for locking them alltogether, but i think it would be better to switch to manual locking hubs, also does warn make manual hubs for my truck?

no the purpose of the hubs would be to unlock the axle.....you don't need hubs....there are plenty of members who are running lockers in their live axle...
