yeh that sounds like a much cheaper fix that switching to the AVM Manual locking hubs. Hopefully this does the trick!

Haha! Got the truck, they did it free of charge since it was still under warranty from the wheel-bearing/hub replacement!

We got the truck, went down to a spot near a park where there was some grass I could go on, put it in 4wd and punched it, took off like a rocket. Put it in 2wd, spun like crazy. Thanks for the help guys! I'll definitely keep manual in mind just in case something happens down the road!

Well, I am new to the site, and new to the topic of four wheel drive. I have a 2000 Ford Ranger. I notice that the years mentioned in this topic all concern mid ninety's rangers. Are the 2000's vacuum like the earlier years? I have a problem of the hubs not locking also. With the engine off and the switch in the on position, I put it in 4wd and I can hear the motor on the t-case working. So I think it is ok.

Thanks!

They switched over to a live axle in the newer model 2000s if your truck is a 2000 and it was made in 2000 you will most likey have a Live axle. Best way to check to see is if you take off your front center caps, and if there is a big nut behind it you have a live axle, If not then you have auto hubs.
