I don't know but mine are too. they go good 3/4 of the way and then freeze up. It sucks. Let me know if you get an answer. Oh yeah, mine are on a Dana 30 with the Warn hub kit.

Warn has changed the detents in their hubs in the last couple of years. They are a real bitch when new, but get better with time. And if you are worried about breakin a nail, you can call R&P at 503-557-8911 they can set you up with a Hubber to help you out.

You can build your own "hub helper" - just do to the local home supply store and get some plastic PVC "T" fittings - cut a notch in the base of the "T" and there you go <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

So, let me get this straight they will give me a hummer. How is this going to help? Granted I like getting hummers and would not complain. Can she lock my hubs while she's at it?

Are they new? Or have they been on for a while. Mine got all full of crap after a couple water crossings and I needed to disassemble, clean and regrease.

Still no correct answer. Take off the hub dial, I bet it is full of lots of crap, forcing the hubs with a hubber can only cause harm to the hub internals. Clean it all out, LIGHTLY grease all the internals, and intsall the hub making sure to use RTV or something to seal it good so it will not happen again.

When I bought my CJ, the hubs were hell to turn. When I took off the hubs, they were packed FULL of grease, so much that the pressure would make it hard to lock. Disasemble and LIGHTLY grease, let us know what you find.
