For sale, 2 sets of fully restored and tested Warn 3 ring locking hubs. These fit the axels that have the snap rings. I completely took these apart, cleaned, sanded down the outer aluminum body to remove as many of the 50-60 years worth of dings and scrapes as possible, replaced the 2 O-rings which include the correct beveled one that goes around the brass knob. They were then taped off and the recessed area of the rings were painted black like originally and the brass dial was painted as originally with red dots and black wording. Note that at some time in the past, someone had used pliars or whatever to turn them when stiff. I did a little work to remove some edges, but choose not to get aggressive with removing metal. They were then greased and reassembled. I installed them on my 1958 CJ5 to test to make sure they engaged and disengaged correctly. The brass knobs now easily turn from Free to Locked and back. I choose NOT to clear coat them but you could easily do that. They come with a new Warn brand gasket between two halves of the body. I have attached pics of what they looked like when I got the batches. They were nasty and most did not turn freely. $250 per set.  Shipping is actual cost or can bring to FCT.

Typical batch before:
