Default Warn hub lock nut trick

So Iíve got the Warn hub kit on my dana 30. Love it but every time I check the bearings the lock nut is finger lose! Looked a little closer at it today and realized the grooves line up when tightened so I could get a 1/16Ē cotter pin in there!
Just trimmed the length then put the hub on to check clearance and it works! No more loose hub nuts 🤞

I have done similar, in that I drilled thru the outer lock nut, threaded it, and put set screw in, so that once they were tight, I just tightened the setscrew to lock them together.

Just make sure you use the finest thread setscrew you can find so you have as many threads as possible in the outer lock nut.
