Are the warn hubs not any good? Im confused
Every wheeler will give you an opionion as to what is best. Get what you like, get what you can afford.
I was mostly busting Dodgboys chops because it was an lame post with no substance to back up why Warn hubs are "Zee best!!!"
Personally I have had a set of warn hubs fall off my Ramcharger. So I am not a big fan. I could have had a bad set, I could have had one faulty hub. But when my lockring and knob from the hub passed me while going down the road. The inner aluminum portion that holds the rest of the manual hub to the wheel end has six or eight threaded holes. Those holes wore out or stripped out. Thus my Warn hub left my truck at freeway speed. Did not make me happy.
The hub was not covered because I was not the original owner/installer. Thats what I got for using JY parts.
I put a set of Milemarkers on my truck. They were sturdy, easy to turn and grasp. All metal. I honestly dont know if they have a warrenty on them. I put them on my Ramcharger in 2004 and a set on my truck in 2005. No issues to date.
Does that make them the greatest and the only ones you should buy.... no. Shop around, review and ask. An google the product you are interested in with keywords like, reviews, failure, recall, warrenty, etc etc. warn hub failure
