Nice Caliper choice. ;)

Why bolt-on hubs instead of splined-in hubs ? Was it just the added cost of broaching the splines ?

The spindle snout is stock. They are very strong.
As for the spline hub Jason wants to be able to unlock the axles and lock the axles when he wants to. He found a Warn locking hub and made some cool parts inside:)

Guess I wasn't clear. The locking hubs that spline into the wheel hub, as opposed to those that bolt onto the wheel hub, have far fewer problems with coming loose. Most of the jeep & IH crawler guys that still use 'small 'axles like D44's have problems with the bolts working loose. Studs don't seem to help. About the only method that seems to work with that design type are the cone washers that Toyota uses.
I don't know if this will be an issue for dez racing/prerunning or not.

Jerry,

Is the bolt pattern still Ranger/Exploder or is it F150 on the new hub? They look way nice and I might be coming your way for a set. Will you sell parts or is it all or nothing? I won't be using 4wd is why I ask.

Jerry,

I have a '97 ranger 4x4 w/auto hubs. Are there any other options for hubs besides the stock manual hub conversion? I would love to have that setup, but i dont have the money for that as well as new rims etc.

Thanks,
Paul
