    Just broke my third 35 spline hub in omly 8 months. First one was on the rocks then today pulling a freind out of the mud the right side let go and a bit latter the left. So should I ditch the hubs(life time warnty) and get those block outs that relace the hubs. What are they called? What part #'s. Are they stronger? Pro's and cons?

    I believe they are called drive flanges... thats all I know about them. I do, however, recall hearing that they don't break as easily because there are like no moving parts in it, but you will always be locked...

    pros and cons- you shouldn't break anymore other than the axle shafts and u-joints. and you can't disengage the front anymore with them.

    Yow. Makes sense, the holes are larger, so no surprise you'll pop more of them. I've been looking for slugs (aka drive-flanges) for a while now...

    <font color="green"> Yep, the slugs are supposed to be alot stronger. So is Warn taking back your broken hubs when you warranty them? If you have any of them left I'd be interested in getting one from you. I'll just get a new lockring for it and use it as a trail spare since I may have the same problems with my 35 spliners... </font>

    Lets see if i understand, by holes, you are talking about where the stub goes in the hub? So when you go to 35spline outers, you are making the stub stronger and the hub weaker?

    The hole is bigger for the 35 spline stub, the outside is a constant, so the surrounding material is thinner. That could certainly lead to more broken hubs, assuming that's what broke. Or, it could have stripped, which would be less likely with a 35 spline hub...

    4WPH is warrenting them. So thats part of my debate, mabey I should just buy a spare hub, but no matter how easy to fix I dont like breaking.

    If you run tall skinnies, the lockouts are right there waiting eat a rock. Mine will get flanges when the Michelin XL's go on /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    with my 18" wide Boggers that's not a big concern.
