    Super duty front locking hubs

    Ok, i got a question. I just picked up an 01 F-350 dually for dirt cheap. It needed the usual stuff (front axle u-joints, upper and lower ball joints, front brakes) but it also needs a right front locking hub for the 4WD. I called the dealer and they want $315 per hub. So I did some shopping and found a set of WARN hubs for $230 a set. But with one stipulation..it won't fit the dually front axle. I called WARN and they couldn't give me a direct reason for them not fitting other than they won't clear the adapter for the front rim. I've read online were people have used the hubs on duallys and they have been fine and others that have been horror stories. Anyone ever run into this issue before or is WARN just blowing smoke up my ass about them not fitting?

    This is the style hub that needs replacing.

    None that I have found. I had my boss talk to them on Tues. Figured he might get some more clearer answers out of them being an owner of an repair shop and all. He did find out that its no longer than the stock hub, just s little fatter in diameter. I believe they should fit fine. The stock ones have about 1/2 inch clearance all around the dually hub adapter and from the pics, the warn ones look minutely bigger. I know looks can be deceiving and all but it sure worth a try
