Hey guys,

Has anyone had any experience with MileMarker brand locking hubs? Why are they so much cheaper than WARN's? I know WARN probably has the highest quality, but are they worth the money?

Thanks!

I've bought nothing but WARN in the past, but they are extremely expensive compared to other brands... I was just wondering what makes them so much better?

That's what I have right now on my 80's Waggy front axle... they are really nice! Solid metal all around! No plastic!

the warn manual hubs for a jeep rear dana 35 are even stronger that the warn manual hubs for the ford front dana35. the jeep rear hubs will work on the ford front. ;)

Why would you need lock outs on the rear? I have heard of using the Jeep D35 hubs before and I always wondered what Jeep came with a D35 up front (never heard of a D35 steering axle). I knew the d35 was a popular rear for Jeeps but never understood why they would need lockouts on it.

i think they use them when you tow a jeep with a locker on flat ground so the wheels are free for turns.

i would run warn i have not had any problems with them i used a set of mile markers on a full size blazer and striped them out. but if its a street truck that see's very little wheeling then they would be just fine but if you wont to beat on them use warn.

ive had warn winches on my atvs but if i was going to buy a set of hubs now for my ttb it would be milemarker, theyre so much cheaper and apparently just as strong.
ill let you know how they hold up when i get my new axle with the auto hubs and put on some Milemarkers
