Trying to locate the correct wheel hub assembly

I have looked all over and can't get a definite answer. I have a 2005 lly Rwd I am trying to change the front wheel bearings and every one I have found is splined for a 4wd with no dust covers. Does anyone have a part number for the 2wd hub assembly? Thanks for the help

I'm pretty sure they are the same hub, jut that 2wd doesn't have any splines to insert into the hub. To be sure get your VIN# and to go GMPARTSGIANT.COM and use your vin # to look up the correct part number for your truck. Another way to do this is to use RockAuto.COM and see what they have and their fitment guide.

Yup, the solid center hubs no longer exist. They're all splined for 4wd, but are also used on 2wd trucks now, too.

davester did a nice write-up doing a 2wd to 4wd conversion.

If you do go for the conversion, besides reading that thread (I converted my gas 6.0L 3500 to 4wd), some things you might need to investigate/deal with for converting a diesel would be:
-what needs to be done to the Allison to convert between 2wd and 4wd
-you want the right "version" of transfer case and front diff...from either another diesel, but a 8.1L gas might also use the same bits (I'm not sure). You don't want them from a 6.0L gas truck, as they are slightly weaker (front diff might be the same size, but likely the wrong ratio). A parts truck works great, as it means you have all the bits needed to do it...and you have spare parts for when other things break!
-might need to alter your exhaust pipes to fit around the front driveshaft
-might want to see if your truck's wiring harness has the plug for the manual 4wd system. Mine did, so I could just plug it in, insert the 4wd fuse, and the front diff would automatically lock/unlock as I shifted in&out of 4wd. I still have to do something to have a 4wd indicator light, as I haven't found a way to flash the IP to support 4wd

The hardest part was making the upper driver's side mount for the front diff. It needs to be in a pretty specific spot, and there's not a lot of space to work with, and there will be less with a diesel, and you likely will want to make sure to retain access to the engine mount which is right next to it. It was a lot of back & forth of grinding/welding then test fitting over and over again until it was in a good spot, and it's not perfect as I need to jiggle the diff a bit to get the bolt in. If you pull the engine and maybe move the steering box/shaft a bit, it'll be much easier to make and install that upper bracket (and you can choose to either make it bolt in like mine, or just weld it directly to the frame).
