    Which manual hub is better? Am I just paying for the name if I buy Warns? Any difference on the install between the two? Thanks for the input [​IMG]

    I have been using Warn Premiums in my 72 and have NEVER had any issues with them and when servicing the wheel bearings they remove and install very easyly too!! I will stick with Warn just cuz I know they work!!
    Good Luck

    I heard/read somewhere that Warn actually "stole" the plans for their Premium hubs from Mile Marker and that MM Premiumhubs were identical. I dont know if this is true, but I would imagine that the MM hubs would be cheaper!

    Ive always heard that Warn was the best... but I went with Superwinch and I have no complaints. They were very easy to Install and always perform when called upon.

    Warn used to be the best on the market and was always my preference. That said I have not been happy with the fact that they have changed to nylon internals on some parts of them. I would go to a local 4x4 shop, have them set up the Warn, the MileMarker, and the Superwinch premiums for you to examine, look closely at the internals, I like a hub that has a long throw wiht a positive click when it locks into place, and check for plastic internals.
    hope this helps.
