Even though I can't have manual hubs for my situation, I do know some about the topic.
Warn makes a 5 on 4.5 hub conversion kit forJeeps, Ford Rangers and Explorers. It is relatively affordable and reliable.
I think it has more than enough strength for 31s, which is what it was designed for. Plenty adequate strength for 33s.
I think 35s are pushing its limits, but there are many TJ guys at this forum using it with 35" tires for rock crawling.
For a Ford Ranger or Exploder, I think it works with stock wheels.
I don't think it works with stock Jeep 5 on 4.5 wheels, but it might. I'm not sure. It'd be great if it did.
You could get some used Ford Ranger/Exploder wheels and they will fit an XJ, TJ, YJ and so that might also fit the hub kit. So that might be a way to get compatible wheels cheap.
Where this mod gets prohibitively expensive is if you buy new aftermarket wheels. IMO
If I wasn't handicapped, I'd probably want this mod.
The TJ guys are well familiar with this topic. Some YJ and XJ guys too.
To learn more, I suggest Googling "Warn 4.5 hub conversion", or start a thread in TJ section of Jeepforum.
