Hey ya'll this is my first post here. I've been reading for a while and I'm loving this forum. I was hoping to get some opinions on Warn hub fuses. Last weekend I took out my blazer for the first time after spending all winter and all of my credit limit stuffing 3/4 ton axles, new springs, tires, fender flares, and a spool in the front. First big mudpit I came to I locked in both the hubs, hit it hard and made it about halfway through before I broke the driver side cv joint. This leads me to a few questions. Has anybody had an exprience with Warn hub fuses? Supposedly these things are made to break before the u joints will and they are cheaper and easier to replace. Sounds great to me but I am new to driving with a spooled up front end. Am I just going to break the fuse every time I put my foot down? I am hoping to get away with just junkyarding a new inner and outer axle shaft (I'm pretty sure I broke the yokes on both of em) and installing the hub fuse. Figure I can do this in an afternoon for around $100. My other option is to whip out the ol' Mastercard and get the Warn axleshafts and CTM joint. Priced this out at $650 for just the broken driver side. So the question is this: With the spool in the front and my motto of "drive it like you stole it", does the stock stuff even have a chance or am I probably going to break every weekend? I really do not have the cash right now to do it right so I'm hoping the hub fuse combined with stock junkyard parts will keep me out of trouble for a while. Thoughts?
