Default Manual Hub lockers...

Wantin to get hub lockers since diff lockers are too much. I am just wondering if i get the manual WARN hub lockers would they actually work on my truck. I have an 04 F150 Scab 5.4 4x4 with i am pretty sure are open diffs in the front and back.

Here is the website i found them on. If theyll work can someone please tell me which ones id need??

Also would 295x70x17 tires fit on stock rims with a 3in level?

Thanks

Those won't work for what you want, they just lock the wheel to the axle but the diff is still open, and I don't even think they make manual hubs for our trucks.

...ya lockers and lockouts are 2 different things.... lockers lock the axles to the carrier gear on both axles... lockouts lock the axles to the wheels....if you had lockouts that would only let you unlock your axles from your wheel... locksers allow you to spin both front axles no matter what wheel is the easiest to spin....and they dont make lockouts for 97-2011... f150's you can get them on the 250 and f350's...

Alight well i think im gunna go with the 285x75s instead. And since the hub lockers won't work would i be better off with just an Aussie rear locker? And idk what in the front...
