Locking Hubs STUDS...what kind?

what kinda studs do i want for holding the locking hubs on the 85 CJ7 ?

what lengths, thread size. Etc?

i ask because either i lost a hub or it was stolen. I had the nifty superwinch variety....went to my jeep this morn. and it was missing! i retraced all my steps hoping maybe it had fallen off....but i didnt find anything on the roads i had driven the day before.....

let me know...
Thanks guys

Are any of the bolts broken off inside the holes? Kinda weird someone would steal one.

Re: Locking Hubs STUDS...what kind?

A year or so ago there was a discussion on this very subject. For some reason, at that time, no one had really come up with a good solution to replacing the bolts with studs. Seems to me if you went down to a large fastener company and started looking at what they have in the way of studs, there oughta be something suitable that you could then use with nylock nuts. One of those things I've been meaning to do, instead I just tighten my bolts a couple times a week and ALWAYS before wheeling. A locker just exacerbates the bolt loosening problem. I think when I go into Farmington today or tomorrow I'll stop by Ja-Lu Fasteners, they haven't failed me yet.

Warn has come out with a stud kit to solve this problem. Even if you don't have Warn hubs it will work.

They are not 1/4". From memory, I'd say closer to 5/16".

Here's the p/n for the Warn stud kit for the 5 bolt hubs. I'm going to give my friend at the 4by store a call for a price, I can usually get everything just a hair over cost.

That stud kit is about $45! I think maybe I'll live with it, or try the fastener store.

Re: Locking Hubs STUDS...what kind?

My axle is at the house in the midcoast area, or I'd have some measurements, I haven't converted the Scout axles yet. It's easy. Just take one of the bolts down to NAPA or another store, and tell them you want a stud that's 1/2" longer than the bolt, with the same thread size and pitch. They'll give you some, just make sure to get the nuts that go on the outside, which is smaller than the part that threads into the wheel hub. To screw them in, just tighten two nuts back to back on the end, throw some Loctite to the threads, and screw it in. Then back the nuts off one at a time, and it's in.
