Re: auto hubs
Sorry for long post, but I think this will help in your decision.
Warn Premiums are really easy to install. This subject has been covered extensively in the past, but I will point out a few thing. Since your truck is a 93, just like mine, you will need to purchase the conversion kit. You will need two special sockets and some type of pick, (which you can purchase at any auto parts store.) The two sockets are to remove the original wheel bearing retainer and replace the new one. While you are in there, you should check and repack your bearings. The pick is used to remove a retainer ring that holds the hub in. It may take a little work, but use the pick to remove (this is the hardest part of the entire process). Last but not least, do not add any grease to the new hubs, they are sent pre lubed.
Manuals work great.
1.There is not worry about keeping them locked, as with Autos.
2. They are stronger.
3. You can lock the hubs and drive in 2w drive, and use your button to activate 4 wheel drive if needed. (I lock my hubs before entering the Beach, Deer Lease, Trails and drive in 2 wheel until I need the 4 wheel).
You have to get out of your truck and lock hubs. I assume that this might not be fun where it is snowy, Icy, etc. But us in Houston don't have to worry about this.
