Complete Offroad - Locking Hubs & Drive Flanges
Locking Hub Advantages
Aftermarket locking hubs have become popular due to advances in technology and better, more durable materials such as using Chrome-Moly steel (SAE grade 4340) for internal components.
Benefits of a locking hub include:
- Reduced wear on the front axle components due to not rotating during normal driving operation.
- Greater fuel economy due to reduced drag when the hubs are unlocked.
Hardcore Locking Hubs feature all steel construction, including Chrome-Moly internals, as well as a low-profile bezel and selector to reduce impact with obstacles and a coating on the locking gears for decreased friction.
