Looks like that's exactly what I have. I called Warn and sounds like it's a simple swap. Do you think it's really worth it to spend $25 more for the Premium hubs over the OEM style Standard hubs for...

There is a typical old style hub that sticks out through the wheel, like my old F-150. But instead of a hub locking dial like my Ford had, there is simply a chrome cap. I had thought Dodge was using...
