i dont know 40 bucks

the hardest part is getting the keystock out of the spindle. its a little key that locks the outer spindle nut. takes a few tries with a pick and magnet to get it out.

ya done it before. and yes. push button 4x4 sucks though. you can convert it to manual shift transfercase though. just depends on how much you use 4wheel drive in the truck right

no, for that you would need a manual shift style transfercase, there are a couple different ones you can use. you would also need the front driveshaft and shift linkage and rubber boot.

spend some time on this website and educate yourself

too bad, I just turfed about 4 manual 1350s... they're pretty common and not worth much so finding one should be simple and if your handy with a wrench they arnt hard to change either, nice light case.

this may sound like a dumb question but i started to do the hubs myself and notice that there was no tinnerman clips that are supposed to hold the hubs in place,i was wondering if they completely necessary or will the rim and tire hold everything in place once its mounted back on?
