For $94.50 i don't think you couldn't really go wrong even if you use them for spares

the one I saw break was on chevyrks yj with a v8 and 60 front. It broke in a wheelspeed spot and not from a bind. But that is a good price...buy two sets so you have a spare or two.

Do not buy these hubs, you will spend more time fixing than wheeling. They are $99 for a reason. When they do break (and they will) and you get to see the parts inside that are supposed to put your 500 ftbs to the ground you will be very disappointed with the design. I broke one of these at Dog Party a few years ago with only 40' Iroks and spent the rest of the day struggling, then broke the other later that day trying to get it on the trailer. I've been through many sets of these.

Last time I saw him in his rig, his wife was driving (and having a blast!!!)

I run them on my tow rig/DD. It's fine for hauling the trailer through crappy roads a a little dune running once in a while, but I would never use them for serious wheeling. get some Warn premiums from Jeff's Bronco Graveyard and never look back.- or go 1 step further and go with some solid slugs.

The broken hubs from last weekend were both on D60's. Warn premiums have a terrible reputation. Drive slugs will work with a locker.

In my opinion the cheap warns are the best bang for the buck. Do they break? Yes they do, still got a warranty on them, cheaper than the premium ones and easier to get.
