Rubicon locking hubs

I would like to put locking hubs front and rear on my 05 Rubicon with Dana 44axles with disc brakes. Anyone know who makes them and how well they work? Super Winch advertises them. Any comments?
I tow the Rubicon on all four behind my motorhome and would like to de-stress the axles and gears.

I believe WARN makes some, but I'm not positive.

Warn

I talked to a Warn rep. They did for the front, but no longer do.

Hmmm, I hadn't heard that Warn stopped making the hub conversion for TJ's.

Jerry, can you all confirm this? I know a lot of you all run the small hub and the larger hub conversion on your rigs out there.

I think there was a misunderstanding somewhere. Warn still sells the front axle hub conversion kit which fits both the TJ and the Rubicon. http://www.warn.com/truck/axles/conv...wer_jeep.shtml which is the kit I'm running.

Ah, there you are boss. I figured you all would know if that was true or not.

I know, back from the dead on this ancient thread, but with a new question:

I bought a TJ with a rubicon D44 axle that has the hub conversion and is running premium warn hubs. Since it's no longer produced by warn, I'm having some trouble finding info on it.

Specifcally: what junkyard hubs can I use as spares? What is the spline count of the outer stub shaft? (I know I should pull one and answer the question myself, but... lazy.)

Anyone with a parts list and part numbers of the stuff that originally came with this kit want to post it up for me?

Thanks!!

Randy's Ring & Pinion bought Warn's hub line and they carry parts. Home Page

Their full size hubs should be 30 spline. Warn also made a small hub kit which retained the OE 27 spline outer stub shaft size.

Warn still sells the Premium locking hub. They will know what part numbers you need if you contact them.

Thanks guys. I will pull one of my hubs and count splines, take some measurements, etc. I think this kit has 30 spline outers, it has the 5 on 5.5 bolt pattern on the hubs... I'm hoping to be able to grab wrecking yard lockouts for spares rather than buy new, but if I have a part number I can probably find out what else it fits...
