Anyone broke their Warn FF rear axle (hub, spindle, axle)? Under what conditions? What type of drivetrain (engine, tranny, t-case,diffs, & tires) were you running?

Just curious - I have one installed and heard some horror stories this past weekend. Got me thinking about D60's F&R.

I've got a '74 FJ40 with the Warn FF, had it in for 2 years, with a 383 stroker and a B&M blower with a TH400, Lockrights front and rear and 33 TSL SX superswampers, and no problems with FF.

No breakage here

350, sm420, 488, 35 tires.

However, I do not run the hub, I run the end plate, which IMHO is less likely to fracture.
The hubs stick out further than the plate and may get slammed by rocks. It is a wiz to pull the axles so for my purposesthe hub is no great advantage.
