    Switching to Modern Locking Hubs?

    Any thoughts or reviews on what brands are out there to switch from these old lockomatics to a more modern locking hub? I have seen a few but curious if anyone has results with the Rugged Ridge brand and experience with others. After finding 2 different bearings on mine with different nuts, I can see why most just upgrade, but these were in good shape so was going to just try and keep them until now. Here are the 2 different roller bearings that came out. One with the special locknut , larger bearing, and one on the drivers side with smaller bearing using regular spindel nuts.

    I replaced an old set of Dualmatics with new Warns. Haven’t done any serious off roading with these but Warns I had on other vehicles never gave me any trouble.

    I don't think the parts for the old Warn hub locks are available anymore. It would be hit or miss with the internet searches. I had an original set that was really beat up. I could not find any parts.

    If you mean the new Warns, I bought mine at my local NAPA 4-5 years ago. They were also available on Amazon then. I haven’t looked recently.

    There are a few places that show they have some. I Googled "Warn 29062 hub locks for sale" and found a few.

    The Warn units are still hard to beat. The 29062 is the one you need.

    Thanks for the tip! Any idea if that smaller bearing in the pic is available? It was installed with the 2 regular spindel nuts on drivers side and seemed to be an okay setup although I wasnt there when all this was done obviously. Was that a correct installation back then using a smaller bearing and the 2 spindel nuts?

    You just have to make sure they fit your year and axle splines.
