    The only good thing about an 80 series is..... the front end?? Wrong!!, the Engine?? Wrong!! the Full Time 4WD system?? Wrong!! Its the NissanPatrol.com.au stubby holder fitted over the transfer lever.

    It is an easy swap out mate. Take them off one of the guys It's a, they are not using them. I like the auto hubs to be honest, they are easy and convenient.

    Was truly hoping to knot upgrade to other bush hubs blokes :-)
    Trying to read between the lines here I think they might be tougher (locked in) than I/we first assumed?

    Stick with them mate. They are fine. If in doubt lock them rather than Auto.

    Spewing! I had a chance to grab a brand new in box set for peanuts, but the seller was adamant they wont fit my Patrol so I backed out. Plus, their round shape instead of the hex / bolt cut out kind of shape on my patrol worried me about the fit. I just wanted them as a spare... OH well good to know now anyway!

    I took the auto function out of my auto hubs. Now its just free or locked.

    FWIW. I have a front arb locked Marko and have had now issues using them with converted hubs!

    Got a link of camp mod of OEM auto hubs to manual mode?. Just in case.

    @MB all depends on what you want to go without, but do agree, just lock in manual operation if for long haul serious stuff, Run auto heaps, never an issue_Auto, for me just a bit lazy to engage smoothly on first cold run, but move lever in/out @ idle a few time before driving and all good.

    Its very simple to do john. Simply get a flat blade screw driver and lever out the flat plate in the hub you see when you first remove it from the wheel. Real simple....

    I had very bad internet but googled it at the time. It is a very easy thing to do. leaver out the locking ring and refit it. 5 minute mod to be honest.

    Check this thread on P4x4. Unfortunately the thread here and there are both corrupted by Photobucket paywalls damn it. But you might make out what is what.
