Does anyone know of a locking hub set up for a ford 8.8 front axle?

I bought a set of mile markers for an 8.8 several years ago, I was quite pleased with them.

Hmm, 8.8 = IFS CAD front.... Only way you're gonna get locking hubs is put in a real axle

I guess I had a D-50 confused for an 8.8, they are the same carrier aren't they? Just in a junk TTB setup?

Nope, an 8.8 front is the 8.8 IFS front end found in the F150's, and it's based on the 8.8" Ford rear. The D50 is all Dana.

the 8.8 front is the 1997 up F-150 front end. no hubs and no easy way to convert to them.

Does it have auto hubs? If its a 3/4 ttb all you gotta do is go to the junk yard and get some factory hubs and install em. Or if you want good ones WARN Mile Marker superwinch all make hubs for it.

Dont forget those cross drilled brake lines
