Internal conversion kit lockout hubs

Just came back from a little 'light' wheeling and noticed that one of my lockout hubs disappeared with 3 of the bolts sheared off. It had the usual problem of bolts working loose.

I wanted to upgrade to Warn's internal hub conversion kit 37132, but its not made anymore. What are my best alternate options?

I have some M-M hubs, but am disappointed in how the chrome is pealing off already, 2 or 3 years old...

One of the easiest fixes is to go to studs. Lock tight them in and install the hubs.
Here is an example, but you can assemble your own kit.

Locktite and studs wont help now, the holes have been opened up so it will never stay in there tight. I can push the bolt in about 3/4" before it hits the threads.

OK decision time

6 bolt conversion kit : $240
W37132 : $500

I head good things about the 6 bolt, so I'm leaning that way, any one think that's a bad idea?

This looks the same as YA W37132

Says its for a Scout, 5 X 5.5", does anyone know 100% that it would fit? I called Randy's and they said its for 27 spline outer and should also work for CJ-7.

I saw it posted over on the Scrambler board by one of the old school guys, so I'm guessing it will work. I'd call Warn and ask them.

Scout outers are the same as CJ Dana 30. That kit will work.

It'll work but, you need to replace the spindle so that the D44 outer axles will actually fit and with that being said you need the outer axle shaft or your 4wd won't work as the D30 outer axle is too small.

No, that's not correct.

That internal hub kit is listed for the Scout D44 and Scout D44 outers have the same diameter and spline count as CJ Dana 30 outers. They aren't the same outer axleshafts that the Chevy/Jeep/Ford/Dodge/etc D44s have.
