I picked a matching pair of axles for my YJ project a 60R and a 44F with 8 lug pattern out of an old J series the 44F does not have locking hubs its a full floater. Do I need to throw manual hubs in it?? Or what can i do in order to run that axle??

All 4x4 fronts are FF. To answer the question you can just tape it off and drive it as long as the 2 nuts and lock washer are still in it.

What does it have now?Is it external or internal hub?If internal does it have a silver cap on it?If it has the cap it is fulltime and can be converted to partime by pulling the cap then a snap ring and the drive gears and big spring.Then you can put a set of manual hubs in.I keep a pair of these drive gears and cap for spares.If you want I have pulled the gears and put the cap back on and ran like that.But it takes more time to get 4wheel drive.If it is external I would get a set of hubs.Taping it off would just be temporary.Blazin <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/usa.gif" border="0">

Yep!! Just pull out the innerds like described above and put on hubs. Easy. Keep the innerds for spares in case you break a hub on the trail.
