Good news on Warn Hub fuses

Just received this email from Warn. Seems that the hub fuses are available. This is good news for our birfs. With a set of rings AND fuses, busted birfs should be a thing of the past. In fact, I wonder if rings are needed at all if you run fuses?

The email read:

<font color=blue>Good Morning -

Yes, the Samurai hubs are a direct replacement and yes the hub fuse will work with these hubs. Here are some part numbers and retail prices -

Manual hubs - 34581 - $152.06 for the set of two
Hub fuses - 60863 - $24.95 for the set

Both of these items will need to be purchased through a local dealer, Warn is not set up to sell direct. To find a dealer nearest you, just access our website - warn.com or call our dealer locator line at 1-800-910-1122.

Sincerely,

Just thought I'd pass that along. For $12.50 a fuse, it's cheap trail insurance.

I STAND CORRECTED !
Got any pics/descriptions of these fuses ? Wonder if they can be adapted/copied for other applications ?

Re: Good news on Warn Hub fuses

They work only on Warn hubs, but Warn hubs are available for just about every application. Warn doesn't have any info on the website, but they have an ad in the latest Petersen's.

For 152 bucks for new hubs, I'm buying them and keeping mine as spares.

Re: Good news on Warn Hub fuses

i have warn hubs on the 87 gmc plow truck. these hubs are killer. they were only 79 bucks for the premiums. definately a much better hub than stock chevy. i still like the aisin hubs though. if they ever break ill buy the warns.hey what about the superwinch? i have a set in my garage but they are to a raider. want to send em back and see if i could get the zuk ones for free?

build it, break it, then build it better.

Re: Good news on Warn Hub fuses

I've only hear good things about Warn premium hubs from then Jeeper.

For us, the fuses are the key. Way better to bust a fuse than bust a birfield joint. You can change a fuse in under 5 mins., an axle??? Well, not in 5 mins. I do know that.

In fact, if someone wanted to go on the skinny, the could go with the Hubs and fuses only, and wait till later to ring the birfs. The fuses should snap before the birf does.

I just called a local Warn dealer and they got a set in stock for $122 for the hubs and $20 for the fuses. Heck, rings cost $99 alone.

Re: Good news on Warn Hub fuses

It's a link inside the hub, that's easily replaced, that will supposedly fail before the u-joints or birfields.

Here is the catch, on the jeep boards (pick one of about 5), they are saying the fusible links only work in a straightforward line. So when your wheels are cut and you're more prone to breaking something, they may not let go, and you'll still loose a u-joint or birfield. I'd still run the rings, can't hurt.

Re: Good news on Warn Hub fuses

That's what I'm thinking, JEEPN. I ordered up some rings and will be installing them too. Since I need to rebuild my hubs anyway, I figured go for these while I'm at it. It's extra insurance, and I'll have my stockers as back-ups. Might cost a bit more than just rebuilding, but it can't hurt.

Re: Good news on Warn Hub fuses

Does anyone know how many in-lbs. it takes to snap a Zuk front axle/Birfield? The Warn hub fuse strips at 46,000 in-lbs. I have seen this info for the Toy Birfield/Marfield but have not found it yet for the Zuk.
