Default best hubs for a dana 60

i've got a GM style dana 60 and i'm looking to replace teh cheap superwinch hubs that are on it.. (i'm gonna toss the superwinch hubs on my 04superduty cuz the stock vac operated hubs are JUNK!) so my question is what is the best hub for an abused dana60?

Over the past few months there's been a lot of complaints about the Warn's. In fact, when I went to order a set a couple months back they were on back order. Story was the back order shortage was caused by so many complaints.

Others here recommended the Teraflex brand. I bought a set and they seem OK but I only have one run on them so I can't speak to the long term quality.

Best one Dynalocks but very pricey, or stock spicers. Drive slugs would be better if you don't need to unlock frequently.

Tera flex seem to be the best affordable lockout. Dynalocs are the best but not many people are willing to drop 5 bills on lockouts....

ok i looked around at terzflex hubs and i can only find them for 35 spline stubs... i have to check but i'm 90% sure that both my d60 fronts have stock stubs.. which i beleieve are 30 spline... does tera flex make a 30 spline D60 hub? they look to be comparable in price to warns... so if they are better than warns thats awesome... anybody know about the 30 spline setup?

Might as well switch to 35 spline spicer stubs, much better than stock.

it's not really in the budget right now.. i see the kit with the stubs and hubs for about $500... at the moment i'm building an engine redoing th th400 and freshing up the NP205.. the 35 spline setup has gotta wait.. it's all going in an extended cj5 with a cut tub...

if a DRW and SRW frotn hub are the same i've got some factory hubs off the DRW frotn axle i'm putting under my jeep.. i can get a pic if that will help. are teh factory GM hubs spicers? the axle is from a 70 1 ton dump truck chassis.

What's wrong with stock lockouts until you can afford the 35 spline stubs and lockouts?

x2 I wouldn't waste any money replacing stock lockouts unless the current ones are broke. I'd still have mine except some punk stole them.

i wasn't sure the DRW and SRW front lockouts were the same some lockouts say they aren't compatible with DRW frt hub setups..

ok i guess this would make more sense if i explained it better. i have 2 GM dana60's for my jeep... the one in my jeep right now has superwinch hubs and it a SRW setup... i've heard the superwinch hubs aren't great for abuse so those are goin on my 04 super duty... the other axle i have for my jeep is a DRW setup.. i was gonna swap teh SRW hubs and rotors fomr my current axle to the DRW setup... the DRW front axle has the factory lockouts on it still... so will they work ok with the SRW hub? if so i'm golden.. if not.. i still need a set of lockouts..
