    I've only had my hubs on for a little over a year. I've noticed that the heads of the allen screws that the hub on are rusted.You would think that WARN would give you stainless screws with the kit. Anyone else have this problem?

    High carbon stainless can rust. But will clean up like new.

    Warns dont really live up to the hype.
    they work and are cheap enough to kill off most competition.
    they have a good warrantee

    I used never-sieze on the threads (as I have had a few that don't like coming out) and then a dab of rtv on the bottom of the head (for better sealing). I usually end of getting a little never sieze on the bolt head threading it in and haven't had any rust (with either set of Warns I have had or the Mile Markers on my two trucks). I don't know if it's that the bolts haven't rusted, or if the never-sieze has been protecting them. I live in the Northeast where salt and sand it spread like butter on toast in the winter too.

    Not the ones I just bought (Warn Premiums to go on my 78 K10 10 bolt). I bought them from NAPA, but they came packaged in the "WARN" box.
