I'm looking to upgrade my front end. The axle shaft u-joints are shot and I'll do the ball joints while I'm at it. I really like the idea of lockout hubs though, so I want your opinions on Dynatrac's hub conversions.

Anyway, I'll be doing the install myself, so is there any special tools required? Do I have to open the carrier or anything inside the diff? Is the kit worth the price tag of close to 2 grand? Will the same wheel size fit the hub?

here is a pic of my dyna trac hubs. me and a buddy installed them last june- took us about 8 hours-but we did it a couple of hours each night after work- ) probably could of been done faster if we just did it on a saturday) i don't remember using any special tools-but the hub assembly was tough to get off! ems offroad makes their version- a couple hundred bucks cheaper-but i decided to go with dyna trac because i know they have a good reputation,etc.

The hub on the Dynatrac on shelves right now sticks out pretty far from the wheel and has been a major gripe with me. Saw this at SEMA a few weeks ago and I'm back on board:



Its 2 3/8" shorter than their current model (4 3/4" over all), so keep that in mind...

Okay, What exactly do I have for a front axle then? I thought it was a Corp 9.25.

I don't think I need to worry about the larger hub, the wheels I have now have a center offset so the hub shouldn't really stick out at all.

Do you guys think the extra couple hundred bucks is worth it for the Dynatrac vs. EMS kit?

No kidding! Id be pissed if I bought the larger one and found out there was a shorter one available as I was opening the box!!!


Yes, You have a AAM 925 front axle. Ive heard of a couple fit and finish issues with the EMS kit, but I havent seen them in person to really comment. It seems everyone who has done it has been happy overall with either kit they picked.

Nope. Friendly Dynatrac guy at SEMA told me it will hit the market very soon. Website even has it listed as "coming soon"....

Did he tell you they were for the AAM axle? Cause that link you posted is for the Dana 60. Wont fit our trucks.

So did anyone figure out the diffrence from the EMS Offroad kit and the Dynatrac kit? I'm ready to buy, I just picked up the freakin u-joint for 200 bucks. Hopefully this will be the last time I have to buy them. I'm gunna do the ball joints at the same time while it all apart.
If there is any reason I should spend extra money on the Dynatrac kit, let me know, otherwise, my mind is set on the cheaper EMS Offroad kit. Money is money.
