I think they only come in pairs. I got mine from ebay for a little cheaper then that if I remember right. You can install them your self. I installed them easley, just dont grease them when you put them on they are already oiled with motor oil if I remember correct.

You need one set of 2 hubs, they are sold in sets.

Heres a cheaper site.

Yup just like the older trucks. Just lock them when you start the trail and if you need 4wd just engage it and when you are done with the trail then unlock them. You don't need to unlock them every time you are not using 4wd.

yea

here is what you do.

lock the hubs in at the trail head. and leave the t case in 2wd until 4x4 is needed.

when 4x4 is needed put the button in 4x4 and then it will work. when not needed put it back in 2wd (using teh swith)

or you can run 2 low, put it in 4 Low using the switch but don't lock in the hubs, thats something i used a lot recently because i had no front DS in haha
'
and yea dont grease them, thats probably why mine didnt engage the other night when it was 2, then i went to pull if off and it came out in 3 pieces lol

Only hubs available for PVH trucks are made by AVM. Which come from South America.

Older ranger/explorers have hubs made by Warn/Mile Marker. They widely available. Maybe even at YoyoZone.
