From what I've heard, free wheeling hubs can't be fitted to the current model Hiluxes. As others here have mentioned, www.newhilux.net is the place to check for info on the 2005-2010 hiluxes.
What's you reason for wanting to fit them?

I take it your talking about the SR5 as the SR has locking hubs.

The SR5 has auto disconnection so fitting free wheeling hubs would be a waste of money as they would not offer any advantages.

Why do you want them?

I am wanting to fit them to a SR single cab diesel manual 4x4.
As it is now when in H2 your front diff and tail sharft are still turning.
With FWH in unlock they are not turning so there is no load witch makes them lighter to steer better fuel economy and more power.If you have driven a car with the hubs locked in and then with them out you will know what i mean.

As said above jump on the newhilux web site and go to the 2005 onwards section and ask there.

We have a switch that we can use to disconnect the front diff when in 4wd low thats made a hugh difference when off roading.

Hi Morty,
Google AVM, the makers of free wheeling hubs and see if they make them for your model. I put them on my 99 Hilux ( purchase from ARB and fitted myself) and they work well. I can now use low range on hard surfaces. Can't say I noticed any difference in fuel economy.

Jeff,

I have AVM FWH on my 2003 SR5 Hilux, so I'm sure you could put them on yours once you know the right model (spline count). I got mine from a Terrain Tamer store in WA, so you could try that chain in whatever city you are.

Hope this helps,
