from what i understand,yes they are centrifugal(sp?) and check with your local warn distributor but they should cover any warranty issue even without a receipt,they will get their credit back from warn so they shouldnt have a problem honoring the lifetime warranty...if interested i do still have a brand new set that i am not using...price is right just pm me if interested <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cheers.gif" alt="" />

Need a Spot
Ok, the more I read up on these the more I'm shying away from autos. I guess I don't quite understand the mechanics of locking the fronts and driving around in 2WD until you need to pop it down in 4WD. Is that possible, or would I break something really bad?

Plus, I really don't want to have to back up some 10-15 feet to get the autos to disengage, but that leads me back to my previous question of what if I just take the car out of 4WD will it roll forward without any issue?

I had the warn autos first after my vacs went out. Which i think were allready bad when i got it from the dealership. They worked great for the first sommer, but as i got more ballsy, they started to fail. They rely on a cam fixed to wheel hub, and when the axle spins forward, or back, the outer hub cam nubs spin against the inner, forcing the outer outward to lock the hub. I think nylon, and pot mettle. Go with the manual. Also very fun if you want to prove how far you can go in two low. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

I talked to the guys at Warn and I think I'm going with the autos. I don't do any off-roading and aside from snow and ice, I don't use the 4WD any other time.

Probably would be great for that. I got into some big hills, and crawled through a creek with rocks tall enough to smack the undercarrige. Then went through a culvert and back again. Didn't break then, but i'm sure put the ware on going back and forth navigating through the rocks. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/drunk.gif" alt="" />

I don't understand why you do not choose to go with the manual hubs. If you really don't use your rig in 4x4 mode that often, then it shouldn't be a big deal to jump out and turn them. I've heard to many problems with the other type of hubs. If I have to get out and turn them on, then I know their on. Plus their really inexpensive for the manuals. I put them on myself in no time at all, and I'm not mechanically inclined.
I got the manuals, cause I know they will work if I got to sell the Sporty. Heaven forbid. She's my baby...

there are no push buttons, they are all shift lever on the 1st gen at least....as far as the shift on the fly, i'm not sure, i can shift from 2 to 4hi on the fly with no problems but you have to be stopped completly to go from 4hi to 4lo...thats the way they are designed to work...if youre having probs shifting on the fly from 2 to 4hi maybe someone else can help you that knows a lil more about them <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />
