Warn Premium Hubs. The quality is much better than any other.

I have warn standards right now, they have held up thus far. The premiums are THE best out there.

One to stay away from is the "super winch" hubs. They shatter inside the hub and you cant get them out. Seen it happen MANY MANY times.

Warn premiums dont even cost that much, 70 bucks for em. And well worth it.

I agree. Except, the only difference in the Warn Premium and Warn Standard is..... the exterior. All the interior parts are the same. So you pay 20 buck more for the cool metal exterior.... just so you know...

just make sure you dont put it into 4wd hi while the front hubs are unlocked. you will ruin the viscous coupling in the transfer case, pronto.

sm.

ps: most people say that there is minimal mpg gain, if any, and its probably better to keep the gears and all turning in the front so the seals stay good.

Whoa, didn't know that would happen. Can you point me to an explanation so you don't have to type it all? Thanx a bunch.

Cool

The 229 has a limited slip diff in it, it does not "lock" in high range. It will "sense" the front wheels spinning if the hubs are not locked, much like if you raised one tire off the ground with a limited slip in the diff. You may get some movement, but the excessive slip will burn that puppy up fast. It does lock in low range, which would allow you to drive on one driveshaft or with the hubs unlocked. This is why a lot of guys don't like the 229, you can't limp home on one shaft. You can run your hubs unlocked in 2wd mode if you like. If you did accidently run unlocked hubs in 4wd high, it would feel like your transmission was slipping, worse with more throttle.
