    Well, since there always has to be one naysayer in the bunch, I don't like the Warn premium - I far prefer the standard Warns. The premiums are nicely built and work well, but I hate the dial - the grooves are too shallow for my tastes, and harder to get a grip on.

    I've ran the superwinch hubs for 3 years now with no problems at all. So I'm not convinced on the Warn only statements :)

    See a trend here ???

    Best $70.00 bucks you'll ever spend. I've had warns on all my rigs for the 15 years and never a failure. Also you can get hub fuses for the premium.

    Quality of materials. I have the Superwinch and they have some plastic in them. Isn't the Warns all metal?

    isnt it just the Warn Premiums that are all metal. I just changed out my autos for the standard Warns last weekend and I'm pretty sure the dial is plastic ... its a cake job .. nothing to it ... prolly the best $50 i've spent on the jimmy yet. Anyway, the choices I had were between Warn and Mile Marker ... I chose Warn cause I am more familiar with the name and I have heard mixed reviews about the MM hubs ...

    WARN PREMIUM

    I did break one and went to 4WP performance and they guy said "life time warrenty" go get a new set of the shelf. Out the door I go with new hubs no questions asked. Do the other companies do this?
