    Yes, it's definitely been done here before. I don't have a parts list, but there have been references to the conversion for sure .

    I hate those 98-99 Ranger vacuum hubs
    Tthe aftermarket units do not seem to hold up very well!!! They fall off and fail to lock...
    I know its possible but of the hubs cant hold up then it seems like a bad idea

    Mine have held up and performed very well , i dont rock crawl or anything that abusive but i have used them in muddy fields and snow , also i have pulled some pretty crazy weight in 4wd with the 4406 in low range and the 5.0 screaming lol, i do keep them under the stock center hubcaps , keeps them clean dry and safe
