    I may change out my hubs when I do the gear install on my frontend. I'm wondering how good these hubs are. I'm running Superwinch right now, have been for 5 years now with no problems.

    I like the Warn premiums, but if the ones you have are fine....keep them.

    I like superwinches. If yours are working fine why change them? (Rember murphys laws)
    The only problems I have heard about superwinches is when you are running lockers on the front with big tires.

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Warn premiums are good hubs. I've heard that Spicer hubs are the strongest, but I don't know for sure.

    Like everyone else has said, if it isnt broken, dont fix it. I dont think that there is any advantage to changing from one set of manual hubs to another other than to upgrade to a better/stronger type, but the only time you would really need that is if you broke the ones you have now because they werent strong enough
