I had them on my '97. They were a strong unit. IMO they are as good as the normal Ranger Warn's.

Honestly, I would go either with a set of junkyard hubs or a set of the Warn Jeep hubs, anything else would be a waste of time and/or money.

The Warn Jeep hubs still are not that strong. I have seen them gernade just like the stock Ranger Warn hubs have.

So what would you suggest running? Personally, I am considering getting a set of Warn Jeep hubs. If they can hold up to my abuse, they should be good for 98% of those running a D35 TTB.

The flange style hubs are just not strong. Any you get will gernade. I recommend getting the MileMarkers, easier on the wallet new and when you have to replace them.

Junkyard hubs.

They are identical to Warns except for the color, and will run you far less than even the mile markers. They survive moderate and medium trails just fine. They only grenade when really romped on, under rather extreme conditions. On most RBVs, they never even get used.

run the standard hubs on ur truck kevin, there plenty strong enough and aslong as u dont hammer it when ur binding then u relaly wont ever break them, especially with ur gears and being open up front, i wheeled my old 87 with the stock hubs and gears on 33" boggers and never broke the hubs
