Taking apart my passenger side hub today (DualMatic Manual locking hub; Kingpin Dana 60 axle) I found this chip taken out of the base:

Is it something that doesn't really affect matters, or should I replace it now instead of later?

Good luck -Bruce

I would replace it, I can tell from the pic that the crack is moving down, Most likely along one of the splines.

I'd replace it and thro the old one in the back of the truck as a spare
