mine was already converted, but when I did my 93 Bronco, I just took out the automatics and put in the warns. I was amazed at how simple it was. I know it's not a jeep, but I hope it helps.

Beauty is in the eye of the jeepowner.

Your Jeep doesn't have automatic locking hubs. They are always locked, there is nothing automatic about them.

All you have to do is buy the hubs and bolt them on in place of your drive flanges. Simple and easy.

x2. Those are drive slugs if they have the chrome caps on them. They lock the axleshaft to the wheelbearing hub 100% of the time.

Thanks everyone!! BJ's, i ordered my hubs from you already LOL, was reading the directions and it stated about having to order the spindle nut kit with some axles that have full time locked hubs, just wanted to make 100% sure before i try to install them. Seems like its a go ahead then
