    I broke one of my front manual hubs this week-end and my local 4X4 shop only had the Mile Marker hubs so I went ahead and bought them. Are they any good, please give me your opinion. If they are bad I can still take them back.

    Well, i never had any problems with the Explorer Hubs that were on my 1/2 ton axel, MM makes the explorer hubs, and i've never had any problems with the MM hubs on my 3/4 ton axel, and if you look at the patent numbers, MM hubs are made under lisence using Warns patents, so Its My OPINION that they should work fine, but as with ANY hub, make sure they have a warrenty, and you can take them back if they grenade.

    I got the premium ones with the gold colored center if that makes any difference. Anybody else have any comments about these.

  8. I blew up one of the Super Winch ones pretty easy. Plus I really dont like the fact that they are part plastic inside. A 4X$ Hub that has plastic parts!!! Not for me. I got the Warn's they seal good, and work awsome. Later -80K20

    the d60 versions look a lot nicer then the warns.
    I would run the MM
    I have had warns break from a design flaw.

    from THIS online article it looks like the MM win hands down
