Made by AVM

I know these guys have them. I'm sure others carry them also. Shop around.

Thats why you lock them before you need them. its ok to drive on them locked
without 4wd engaged.. you just lose gas mileage.

I havent gotten them yet, but I know peeps withem and they rawk. Super easy plug-n-play instalation, about 5 mins per side and the only mod you have to do is if you have stock wheels on you have to drill a big *** hole in the center of your center cap so you can cover up your fugly lug nuts. As far a reliability goes, they are as reliable as a live axle, however since they *can* break i would rank them a step back....but the benefits out way the odds of them breaking so I would get em.....im just waiting for a chance to buy and put em in....they are only $117 shipped soo....

2000.5 and up rangers are live axle assemblies......if your truck is a post 97 and a pre-june of 2000 built truck then you are good to go. An easy way to check is to crawl under your front end, locate the cast iron steering knuckle. If you have PVH then there will be a rubber hose coming out of a 90* bent pipette just about where the cv shaft goes through the knuckle. If you have a live axle setup, then this rubber tube and 90* pipette will not be there.....dont confuse the rubber tubing for the ABS sensor wires though!

Kanoeking,

Sure seems easier to just pull the hubcap off. If you see a big nut, it's live axle, not PVH.

Ask me how I know (after I ordered the dang AVM's).....
