1 gen Xterra and R50 front hubs the same?

the part # for warn manual hubs for both R50 and '00 Xterra are the same does that mean that the xterra autohubs will fit on a Pathfinder? the reason I'm asking is that as an R50 owner (with warns) I just bought a 1st gen X and was hoping that I could swap hubs.

I believe it is possible to install Warn #29091 on the Xterra, but I don't think you can install Xterra auto hubs on the R50. If I recall (though it's been a very long time and I could be mistaken), the snap ring fits on a different location on the outer CV axle and it doesn't match the same place on the R50. It would be an interesting experiment to see if it's possible, though.

I recall there are a few slight differences, but with enough donor parts it will work. You need to get part numbers for all the wheel bearings and retaining nuts and such and double check.

I have put R50 drive flanges on a 1st gen Xterra. That was a very long time ago.

thanks for the info guys. looks like I'm off to the JY to find R50 drive flanges to re-install so I can swap out my Warn hubs on to the X and then drive the R50 away.
