Drv parts

Thought I would start this thread off with some hard to find parts or where to find for your DRV.

Hi Spec Center Hub for 17.5 inch rims:
Amazon: $39.77

Yes, they are proud of these!

Look along side the highway, it looks exactly like Ford pickup center caps & I see them in the ditch all the time. Everyone I know with a F350 dually has lost at least one at some time. One of those guys had figured he lost his at a rough bridge joint, so went back to look & whether one of them was his or not he couldn't tell, but picked up 8 of them.
Other than that can't help.

RAM replaced three of my center caps, on the LongHorn they are around $120 each! I put several dabs of the "RightStuff" on the lug nuts where the caps make contact and have had zero losses since.

On the DRV caps be sure to place the spring steel back in place around the friction cups that clamp onto the lug nuts or they will fly off more easily.

juicesqueezer, thanks for the great find!!!

Looks like the TTW cap is for 9/16" lugs/$40.00, 5/8" is $24 higher. Mine look ok with no cap, not liking to spend $64 for something that should fit without falling off...
The Amazon cap looks interesting at $40, but no mention of lug size--anyone gotten one of them yet?

The newer DRV's come with caps that actually have 2 bolts holding them on. Don't know when that started but it's a much better and secure system. As cummins said, on the older system make sure the steel spring is put back in place before reinstallation.

Have had F-350's for close to 20 years. Have NEVER lost a wheel cover on any of them. And I'm not the most careful driver.

I ordered one last week and it came in yesterday. Unfortunately, they sent the wrong part, so will have to wait until Tuesday to contact for a replacement. I mean, the part they sent wasn't even close to being the one I ordered.
DRV has these in stock as well. Here is the link at Amazon.

My 2016 has the two bolts cap but lost one of them on the Indiania Tollway or Illinois I-80, 2 years ago. I have not replaced just run short one cap on the ODS

I have the new style with two stainless machine screws. Next time I have them off to clean the wheels I will add something for oxidation. I could see how the dissimilar metals could be problem.

Unless they have changed, the hub caps are plastic. No oxidation problems.

Yes, but metal coated plastic. Usually chromium plating on a nickel or copper base coat. Porosity in the chromium plating allows moisture and salts in and the base coat corrodes. I've had blue copper salts coming through on some of mine. They can be cleaned with metal cleaner and clear coated to protect them.

You must be terribly unlucky, or I'm terribly lucky. Never had, or seen, plastic with any coating oxidizing against an aluminum wheel. And I do tend to get out a bunch.

Probably nothing to do with aluminum wheels Bill. Salty roads and dust from brake pads probably contribute to the corrosion, although I try to avoid the former. Chromed plastic has been around for a long time.

I haven't ever seen a chromed plastic hub cover 'corrode' but seen lots of them lose the coating and the base plastic shows thru.
