    I just ruined one of the stock hubs and ordered a set of superwinch hubs for my D60. Are they any good? Should I plan on going through them or are they reasonabley OK?

    So far, I've heard the SW hubs are stronger and outlast the other brand name hubs.

    Boyce offers SW hubs on their D60 fronts.

    My '82 K30 has the SW hubs on it.

    I guess I'll just keep my spare hub around and see what happens. Thanks for the feedback.

    I only have a 10 bolt, but i run Superwinch hubs. They are easier to engage , and i have not noted anything wrong.
