    Definately Warn or even better if you can find them is an old set of Spicers.
    Last and only set of MM i used broke after about 5 min of wheeling.

    I agree spicers are better, I took apart a wran premium, and the spring that pushes the gear in isn't the best.
    It failed with one of my friends in Pismo.
    The spicers are the best.
    Just got a set on some axles someone gave me for free /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I have to say Warn Premium. I don't think I will ever use any other hub after this weekend. I went out with some of the AZ guys for a little rock crawling. All the 1/2 ton guys were running Warn Premiums (as do I) and they beat the piss out of there axles with no failures of the Warns.

    i go with warn premiums. Of course, I live relatively close to Warn's HQ... so if I ever have any warranty issues I can go over there and bust some heads. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    I have the Warns, but I don't honestly think that Warn pot metal is any better than MM pot metal......

    But both have lifetime warranties.
