The thread is tilted Quadratrac help, the OP is asking wether the hubs he has are factory. That question has been answered correctly by myself and CSP. The OP has also seen a picture of what came from the factory.

And the name for those "hubs" is drive flange. lucdogs pictue is of a factory drive flange.

If you want to get technical a hub is the piece that houses the wheelbearings and lug studs. Lockouts have been referred to as hubs for so long that most people aren't even aware what the actual hub is.

Even rear wheel drive vehicles have wheelbearing hubs.

Oops, sorry - I'm thinking 44 (like a Wagoneer - the usual home for a Quadratrac), not 30. The 30 uses a flange, not a slug. See the picture above.

The 44 uses a flange that is commonly called a slug, because it has no actual flange. Instead it has splines and goes inside the hub end. Sorry for the confusing terminology. Forget about slugs.

The axle comes from the factory with flanges. Flanges are removed when locking hubs installed.
