Jerry Bransford Warn small hub = 27 spline, big hub = 30 spline.

All Terrain JK I followed your link Jerry and all I could find at Randy's were replacement hubs. I did find Mile Marker and Yukon kits. Not sure what size stub shaft the MM kit has but the Yukon was 27 spline 4340 chromoly and uses 5x4.5 lug pattern. The Warn uses a 30 spline correct?

Digger84 Warn still answers emails and can send instruction PDFs but I have not seen any for sale from warn for quite a while

I did see JP mag did a write up using a small hub lock kit from Omix-Ada.com in the April 2014 issue

Jerry Bransford Randy's Ring & Pinion at Randy's Ring & Pinion bought Warn's hub, I'm not sure if they still sell them after they took on the Yukon hub line.

All Terrain JK Are these kits still available for new purchase? I have searched before and came up with nothing.

Jerry Bransford Warn's "big" hub kit does change the wheel bolt pattern but that's it. Warn's small hub kit retains the TJ's 5x4.5" bolt pattern.

The first pic is Warn's small hub that retains the factory bolt pattern I installed onto my first TJ. Warn's big hub kit shown in the second photo has the chrome trim ring & the nicer twist knob.

My 98 sport also has the warn full floater rear axles with full size warn rear locking hubs and the warn rear disc brake kit and uses the CJ front rotors on all four corners. So mine is 5 on 5.5 all around
Ok i may try to call warn to double check before I spend the money and hey stuck with something I can't use. Thanks though.

Digger84 I attached warn hub conversion instruction PDF with part numbers and diagrams but for me the attachments are only available on my laptop wrangler forum connection and don't show up on my itouch forum app so hopefully if you log in from a pc that message PDF attachment will appear

If not I could email you the attachment

That's what I was thinking just wanted a second opinion. May try to pick them up he says it's chromoly shafts and the kit and is asking like 500 for all of it doesn't seem like a bad deal.
