Teralow 60 Hubs????

Ok I am building a set of 60s right now, and am going to use 35 spline outers and was going to get some Warn Hubs but then I stumbled on these tera hubs, which are about 50 bucks cheaper than the Warns.

But, I also heard that they are Rebadged Milemarkers and Ive also heard that the 30 spline Milemarkers are very weak So Im wondering how they are holding up?

Thanks

You are building a set of 60s, don't cheap out. Its only $50, you'll regret it and then spend more on a set of Warn hubs.

Just stick to what is tried and true, especially building an expensive axle to begin with.

Exactly I was trying to save some money cuz this chit is expensive I know a couple of guys here have bought them and was looking for first hand experience. And I know about bigdudes experience with MM 30 spline hubs, but I dont know if the 35s are any better, hence the question

Oh, and Billavista Im ROTFLMAO

Don't know about the terra low hubs, but I did break a Warn hub and got a free replacement thanks to the lifetime warranty. Go Warn.

Yea i called a local buddy who is a warn dealer, the warn drive flange part # is 39346, for 35 spl. The kit is actually called like rear 60 FF flange or something crazy like that. It is like 200 buks. Yea thats right more expensive than hubs, but bad ass.

Well the teralows are lifetime warrantied too, but Im leaning towards the warns since the teralows arent proven yet.

Another reason I'm gonna run the slugs is I have "Heard" that they sometimes can be a pain in getting them fully engaged...they also need to go a full 9/10 of a turn to engage and require a little "rocking" of the vehicle to fully engage them also....Hitting the ARB switch would be much easier....

Yeah I was told that the 35 spline Warn hubs were actually for a rear axle application also. If anyone needs the Part # here it is for the 35 spline "Lock Out" hubs Warn Part # 62672

Yep they did, and the spicer 35 spline stuff comes out to like180 once you get the dust cover snap rings and drive flanges.

It just seamed easy to order one part and get all you need, and as another not the warn stuff has a stout dust cover, and it would be my guess that it seals out mud and water much better than the hammer on cheasy spicer dust cap.

I have the Teralow hubs, but they just got put on a week ago, haven't beat on them yet (may not until spring, I hate winter wheeling personally).

I decided on trying the Tera's (which definitely are Milemarkers, comes with a little plastic Milemarker "hubber" thingy) after reading nothing but troubles on here regarding the Warns (as mentioned above by Shaker). Do a search, you will see what I mean.

I'm probably going to get slugs for when I'm wheeling (going hydro assist and possibly ARB).

Warn tips

The 35 spline rear FF hubs use a machined ring for whatever reason. This ring causes the need to rock the rig back and forth while turning the hub to get it engaged. Just remove the ring and throw it away.

For the set screw issue.... buy the following from a hardware store:
1 short set-screw (about 3/16 inch)
1 spring (smaller in diameter than the set-screw)
1 BB (bearing)

Replace the Warn set screw with the BB/spring/set-screw combination. You'll have to trim the spring short enough that it allows the BB to slide out of the detent within the hub.

Or you could replace the outer dial with a 30 spline version. I don't think his has the postitive detents though.

this works for me...

i converted a closed knuckle m715 dana60 to 35 splines all the way across. i ended up with the stub axles sticking out 1/2 inch further than a regular dodge/chevy dana 60. plus the pattern to bolt it up is different.
so our answer.
we took 1/2 inch mild steel, and 35 spline spider gears. we used a hole saw with a bunch of oil and low rpms to drill the center hole out........

i have beating them,so far they are doing great

Mike

Yup...those stupid rings seem to negate the one main advantage of Warns (over the OE Spicers, anyway), their ease of use.

I thought about that, but was looking into another solution. The same thing can be accomplished with a vlier pin, its basically a set screw with a spring-loaded ball in the end. I haven't gotten around to finding one that fits yet, though.

Fucking Canadians


Skip milemarker or anyone who re-badges their stuff I sheared the outside "teeth" off the inner splined piece and so did others. If they are Milemarker and have the same design then you could have the same problem.

Bringing this post back to top for any new info.
I am sick of breaking my Warns and prefer not to use drive flanges YET !!!
Anyone use these with good results?
It seems that the warn 35 spline hubs don't fully engage into the slding mechanism, and the end of the gear shears. What good is a lifetime warranty if the shit can't stay together?
Thanks, Ricky...seeya...

I don't know of any "stronger" hubs than Warn's, but Pig at Polyperformance.com makes a nice set of drive flanges.

Yes, we got them done up. I have been working on the site all day and will post a link to the new improved drive gear page in a few hours.
