    The 60 rebuild is well under way.

    The axle has the original Spicer hubs. They are in good mechanical shape (internals), but the plastic dial on one is pretty banged up. I assume the Spicer hub is no longer available, so should I try to fix it, or go to a set of Warn Premiums, or ??? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    if the only damage to the spicer is the cosmetic look of one hubs dial, I'd keep em. There is prolly a way to replace the dial... maybe find some1 that has totally grenaded a spicer and get it from them or something. Warn D60 hubs aint cheap, and afaik they arent any better than spicers so if your used ones are functionally sound, I'd keep em. Just my $0.02.

    If you decide to ditch the Spicers, send me a PM as I would be interested in buying them. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif
