G'day all, I've just put some new wheels on my patrol (roh villans)and they have a cap on the center so it makes it hard to get to the hubs to go from auto to lock. So i was just wondering if anyone knows of any sort air opp. device or somthing to lock them in. thanksMore drive'n less talk'n

Get caps to suit your hubs.
Sounds like you've got caps for a constant 4 wheeler

Cheers

So they're 'cruiser wheels then?
Did they ask when you ordered them?
Your options:
Take 'em back and get Patrol wheels (if that's the case)
Lock the hubs in and forget about them (you probably wouldn't notice any difference anyway)
Get the caps machined to suit your hubs
Put the stockers back on (???!!!???) when you go 4 wheeling

Just leave them set to Auto. If you do some hardcore work and want then locked, then it's a 2 minute job with an allen key to change it (A bit of apain though). The auto setting is good for most work, but if it looks like you may be lifting a wheel, go to locked.

I think I have seen the hub cap with the centre machined out though. You could take them to a machine shop and get it done for minimal cost.

gday mr kim.
the roh villians should be fitted with the type of cap that the end just clips on.
just have a little screw driver in your glove box and just flick them off.
there should be a couple of little cut outs on the cap to remove.back by popular demand

If you do any serious 4WD'ing with the center caps on they will break and then you don't have too worry anymore. I broke the rear ones on the first trip and the fronts on the next trip, now I have no problems.
