Warn Hub vs Asphalt

Monday we got snow. I was in 4wheeldrive made a left turn. The front tires grabbed some asphalt and boomb. Truck jerked and the od light even started flashing. At first I thought I broke the t-case. But tonight I found that the driverside front hub exploded. When I took it apart. It just fell out.


Thank you Warn for lifetime warranty. Cost of the repair was the cost of gas to go get the new hubs. I only put in the driveside. Because one it was getting late and I have to work in the morning. Two why mess with something that aint broke. I will save the other hub incase I need it some day.

So for those that think you can't break a Warn Hub think again.

That is one reason I went with Warn (Lifetime warranty). If they stand behind there product for a lifetime it is good enough for me. Glad to hear all you are out is a little time and gas....

Yeah Dox it wasn't too bad. But I needed to call a couple people about one problem I had. But Pb blaster took care of it.

How fast and how sharp were you turning?
I'm surprised the warn hub even broke-I've run them as well for over 5 years and love them!I've gotten a lot of snow this year and would go from snow covered to dry and when I pull into a parking spot,I can feel and hear the tires skipping on the pavement and truck hops like crazy-I'm going fairly easy when doing so-guess I've just been lucky,but great to know they stand behind their products!
Thanks for the info!

Glad you're back up and running-the good thing is they gave you new ones instead of saying sorry about your bad luck-right?

I didn't even deal with Warn. I went back to Orielly's where I bought them. They gave me no hassle about it. I bought these back in October of last year.
