I purchased these hub lockouts as a replacement for the fragile and complicated ESOF hub lockouts on my 04 Ford F250. The cost of this pair was about half of one of the replacement OEM hubs that were seized and I still had other vacuum issues above the hubs to solve. I am pretty sure the vacuum solenoid was also gone.

These both installed in under an hour but I think one more split ring shim would make for a more secure install. The lockouts with the single ring installed can still move in and out in the hub housing about the width that a second ring would be.

The locking/unlocking action is smooth and easy so no complaints there.

If I had to mention one serious annoyance is that the height of the new lockout is about 1.5" shorter than the stock hub lockout so it is recessed in an area below the opening in the open-center Ford 4wd front hub caps. Not only does it look like garbage and encourages mud and debis trapping but I have big hands and reaching through the hub cap opening is such a chore I just removed the front hub caps entirely. This also doesn't look very good but at least function is 100% and I don't end up packing the open hub caps with mud.

I would recommend these on cost and dependability alone. The recent ice storm found me without a way to make the front axle engage in 4wd with the messed up ESOF and unless you truly test it basically daily you have no data from the truck that will tell you it is not working at the front hub locks. If you can not lock the transfer case the truck will tell you, with the front hubs, you're on your own and both parts of the system have to be working to get the 4wd working. These manual locks remove the doubt one way or the other in the matter and if you get yourself in a sticky situation you need things to work.

These did not fit my 2003 F250 SuperDuty even though Mile Marker advertises them as exact fit. The gear teeth do NOT begin to mesh properly regardless of what Mile Marker Customer Service tells you. (They said to raise the axle and it would work - it does not). Showed them to a Certified GM technician; he said it won't work. Not an Advance Parts issue, a Mile Marker issue. Doing some research I found a number of the same reports on internet. Comparing to Warn hubs the difference is obvious

      Same price as the major Internet retailer (the one that has a type of jungle in it's name) but with the ability to talk with people at the store for help. I ordered online and picked up at the store and it was ready for me in less than 30mins. Really easy to install and with minnesota winter around the corner it will definitely help me drive on the ice to catch some fish.

            I bought these to replace my automatic locking hubs on my 04 F 350. I've only had a chance to use them a couple of times but they lock right in and are very easy to turn. they're also very easy to install. seems to be a very good value for the money spent.

                  Great question Ryan! I looked into the spindle nut for your F-250 with the 7.3L PowerStroke. I see that the Twin Traction Beam Dana 50 should have had those round nuts. The hex nuts are indicated for a RWD truck. If you are looking to retain the automatic hubs the Spindle nut Part No. are as follows: Outer 615-121, Inner 615-122, Washer 618-042. All of these parts are sold in pairs.
