Locking hubs help opinion needed

my right side hub (warn standard) has **** the bed for good.. a ring shattered on the inside and pieces of it kept jamming the axle, so i picked the bits out and the 4 wheel actually worked for a while after but now i think its done...

heres my question!

i found OEM 99.5 hubs for 60$ used
i also found a set of warn standard hubs for 150$ local used

i have heard from a local performance shop that oem is tougher than warn as far as taking a beating and overall strength. Is this true? I dont want to waste me money twice.

My truck is a 99.5 7.3, it is daily driven in new england and i do occasionally take it to play in the rough terrain, mud pits, trails etc. it isnt lifted, and i dont go too extreme..

what can you guys recommend OEM or Warn Standard? THANKS!
