    I have a set of Spicer hubs that came with my Blazer. they work really well and I never had a problem with them. I dont know how much they cost, but I imagine they are inexpensive.

    Warn, the standard ones, have seen them for $40-50, with a Lifetime Warrenty through Warn.
    They are good for about 500HP, for you guy,s that like to qoute HP.

    there are certain things on a truck you should not try to save money on ..........hubs is one of them ....buy the warn premuim and forget about them (other than grease now and then)

    Warn hubs are good.I also had good luck with the Superwinch ones.Just get a hub with all metal and no plastic.The warn ones with the plastic centers like to find the rocks.Plan on a $100 for a good set.Brady
