Any hub with plastic selector knob is shit. Spicer with brass selector and better guts for sure.

pros and cons.

I have busted alloy shafts on my 44 and the warn premiums have held up. i did shatter one. but thats of 4 busted alloys.
The stock ones are great, stronger,, etc etc..
BUT, they don't always engage well, they are a square tooth design. and after a while after wheeling (you think its engaged but it isn't) they pop in and the edges of the stock square tooth starts chipping and fracturing.
If you have stock hubs, run them until they won't run anymore.
then get some premium ones. as the stockers are gettting more and more hard to find.

the warn premiums use a tiny allen bolt to hold them on
when they strip out in the head you cant get them off
had to remove mine with a ax in the bush to change a broken axle
glad i still had the stock ones in the truck
also rub a all metal hub on a rock and see how smooth they lock and unlock or get the stuipid litle allens out
my rc crawler is held together with bigger allen screws
hd to use a wrench on mine
