Manual Locking Hubs

So I have a 03, and all the kits for manual locking hubs that im finding are for older models. Do they make them for the newer trucks?

I believe you can swap out the older style knuckles, cv shafts and hubs to make it work. I know it's been covered, but I can't find it on the search.

I installed manual hubs on 0RangerEdge2's truck when i did the 4x4 swap. use 98-99 cv's hub bearings and the AVM hubs. You will have to get the orange plastic snap rings for the cv axles to hold them in the hubs from the dealership

You don't have vacuum ones. Yours are live at all times. Justin, I can swap over without replacing the steering knuckles?
