Manual Locking Hubs - 4X4

Are manual locking hubs avaialble on a 2006 (on edit, originally said 2004) SuperDuty? Either from the factory or as an aftermarket part? I have them on our 2001 & 1996, but I don't see them as an option on the new trucks.

Any help is apreciated,
Brad

Yes, manual hubs and floor shift transfer cases are available standard equipment.

Re: Manual Locking Hubs - 4X4

Yup, I've had that option on both my PSD's- I wouldn't have ESOF- nothing but potential problems.

Re: Manual Locking Hubs - 4X4

Thanks all. I don't want ESOF either and I do want manual hubs. I have more trouble with the "Build Your Truck" Ford web page. I don't seem to be able to get what I want.

Thanks again,
Brad

Re: Manual Locking Hubs - 4X4

OK. I’m still confused on the 2006 Ford manual locking hubs.

I went down to the Ford dealer today.

Every 2006 F250/350 4x4 had a hub that said: “Lock” & “Auto”.

I want a hub that says: “Lock” & “Free”. Is this type locking hub available from Ford?

Thanks again for any help,
Brad

Re: Manual Locking Hubs - 4X4

Brad, on my '04 I had to order it from the factory. Manual hubs and manual 4x4 are standard, but just about every truck they build they put on the ESOF option because they know most consumers will pay for it if it is on the dealer lot. I ordered my truck with manual tranny and manual 4x4 since I couldn't find any in the greater Oklahoma area.

Re: Manual Locking Hubs - 4X4

Bradley -- I echo what has been said here. I ordered my 2005 with manual hubs and the shift lever on the floor. When I lock the hubs and put the tranfer case in 4wd, it works every time. When I put it back in 2wd and unlock the hubs, it works every time. The same thing cannot be said for ESOF.

Re: Manual Locking Hubs - 4X4

Manual anything or standard equipment, is going to be a special order. You'll not find a "standard equipment" truck on any dealer lot, unless they are a fleet dealer w/ a buy gone bad.

The profit margin is just not there for a dealer to stock a manual trans, manual 4wd.

Let's face it - most of us here are looking at at least an XLT package, I'd guess the vast majorty are "lariat" and I've seen so many guys with Crewcab King Ranchs here, I wonder Ford's profits aren't in better shape. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif[/img]

Most of the car/truck buying American's now wouldn't know how to use a manual transmission anyway (I know my wife can't, & its almost caused divorce, I'm so disgusted with her).

Re: Manual Locking Hubs - 4X4

OK. Thanks for all the help.

I think I get it now. I went back down there to the dealer and sure enough, every last truck I looked at with the Auto/Free hubs was an ESOF. They did not have one non-ESOF truck on their lot (and they had about 12 or 14 4x4 trucks).

So, it sounds like if I order the manual TC floor shifter (which is exactly what I want anyway), I will also get the “real” manual wheel hubs “Lock/Free”.

The reason I want it is that I like being able to put the truck in 4lo and leave the hubs unlocked and basically have 2lo for launching our boat on paved ramps/parking lots.

Thanks again for the help,
Brad

Re: Manual Locking Hubs - 4X4

Brad,

I've heard that the hubs are the same on a manual shift as they are on an ESOF, except they don't have the vacuum lines. If you are looking for the "real" manual hubs, you will probably have to go to Warn or someone that deals with hubs to get what you are looking for. Just food for thought!!!!

Later,

Re: Manual Locking Hubs - 4X4

Thanks, but Warn does not make hubs for a 2006 F-350 dually, at least according to their web page.

Re: Manual Locking Hubs - 4X4

I ordered my 06 F350 with traditional locking hubs. If you want the manual locking hubs and shifter on the floor simply do not get the esof option. The stock hubs on my 06 are the same as any aftermarket set of hubs except they are made by ford.

Re: Manual Locking Hubs - 4X4

Bradley -- The manual hubs I ordered on my 2005 only have two positions -- lock and free. This is identical to the Warn locking hubs or other traditional locking hubs.
