81 CJ front Hubs.

Bought some Mile Marker locking hubs for dad's 81 CJ. Not real happy with them though. The passenger side hub if you don't engage it just right it will get out of "time" and not work. Over Thanksgiving weekend we were out wheeling and it just didnt seem like the front was locking in completely. I did try to turn the axle at the hub and it felt like it was engaged but just did not pull with the front axles.

Anyone ever run these hubs? I am leaning toward them not being a very good product and maybe I should go ahead and order the Warn hubs for his Christmas present.

Thoughts?

I have. Several times. When we first built his jeep we had problems with the one hub. Right side hub. It would never lock in right. Normal operation is you can feel the hub hit the "lock" in either free or locked position. This hub never did that so you could actually go past the locked position then it was screwed and had to be taken back apart and clocked right. Tired of missing with the POS. This is going to be dad's Christmas gift from us kids.
