    Just wondering about anyone's experience with Superwinch locking hubs (perferrably with a D60). I can find them as low as $110... will they hold up just like Warn's or MileMarkers? Thx.

    Do a quick search on them because they've been talked about before.... I have em and like em a lot. I know others like them. I'm sure you'll have good stories and people with bad... but name any product where you don't always have at least 1-2 people who dislike something.... same here! /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    IMO the 44 ones are junk. Don't have any experience with the 60 ones, however the Jeep CJ ones have a good reputation.

    I agree with Nouh - I only asked because they look and feel pretty whimpy when you first pull them out of the box. Maybe I will just keep them in the truck for spares... /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    Thanks for everyone's feedback!
