As a side note here... I bought the free spin kit from Dynatrac. I also got there lock outs to go with the conversion. Pricey at $2300.
I haven't done the swap yet but I will say the quality looks and seems fantastic. I will post back about my progress after the upgrade with results. The only thing not in the kit are the wheel joints. It does come with outer axles, for a better spline count. I will be doing the swap sometime in the next month or so before snow falls. Leveling kit is first.

I was thinking about upgrading my hubs too because I thought mine weren’t locking even manually but they are. Are aftermarket hubs that much better than stock hubs?

They either work or they don't...

Properly maintained (occasional cleaning & regreasing), your stock hubs work just like aftermarket

The mile markers are better made than stock, I had two sets of hubs fail before I switched, no problems at all with the mile markers.

I have been running warn premium for a couple of years. Quality is great, but a little pricey but still cheaper than OEM. So far been really happy with warn

I bought a set of Mile Marker 449SS to replace the factory hubs that had seized up on me. I liked that they were stainless and they feel solid. I was a bit disappointed with QA/QC at Mile Marker though. The internal hub component (bottom half) was delivered with a bolt broken off in the threads already. Didn't even notice until I went to screw in the cap assembly. My guess is that it's a refurbished hub or someone had returned this one after breaking a bolt on install. Currently trying to work with MM customer service to get a new one, but if they think I broke a bolt and won't accept it I might be SOL.

Quality of the product: Satisfied
Customer Service: Responsive
Quality Control: Poor

the "store" may not be actually mile marker owned

No, it's been less than a week. Still waiting on a resolution from customer service. Hopefully its a simple one-for-one.

Didn't mean to bogart the thread, just wanted to share my experience with Mile Marker products.
