www.ringpinion.com. Randy's Ring & Pinion is who bought the Warn line of manual hubs, though you may get frustrated trying to find someone at Randy's who knows much about them. If you can figure out the Warn part numbers you need, you may have better luck finding them on the internet like via Google's shopping website at www.froogle.com.

Are you just looking for one hub? If so I might be able to help you out.

Here you go on part numbers, or are you looking for the whole hub conversion as a kit?

Not that they are the same strength, but the Ford Ranger hubs are the same.

Last summer when I blew my hub, I called Randys and gave them the number for the hub (37780). They had it in stock and shipped it out the same day. I did have to purchase the hubs in pairs.

The whole kit may be another story...

Personally, I was looking for a hole kit. Should I call Randy's or someone else?

Randy's is who I would call first for the entire hub kit.

i bought part number 37780 from amazon for 204 and it fit like a glove . . . thanks for the help. I've been looking for that part number for some time. It came in a pair since i didnt need the whole kit since my spindle washer and axle retainer were the only things broken.

I don't understand why you needed to buy the hub if you only needed the spindle washer and axle retainer? You can get those parts separately.

Carrying a spare hub for that particular (aka "small") hub is a good idea, it can be swapped in seconds if it breaks while offroading. I did when I ran the small Warn hubs as that model # is.

Is there a big hub that can be swapped into this setup if that's the weak link?

Trust me, you won't want to. I developed a steel body hub with a drive flange and never turned it into a product when testing showed the carnage it can cause.

I'd never seen broken small hub kit stub shafts until we installed that kit on several rigs. I think out of 5 kits I sent out and or installed, all but one killed stub shafts and spindles.

Let the hub break, it's worth it.

Yes, it is good at creating carnage to hard to find replacement parts.

Destroyed spindle
