i have blown several dualmatic lever type hubs through the years and never had a failure on a warn! the ualmatics were on my m-37 and i broke a pair onone trip to moab! ended up installing the drive flanges i always keep under the seat! the weak point is the inner portion (usually made of or wrapped in steel) where the rotating cams press against it when engaged, itis quite thin. I have had selectros on ffpw, and m-37s as well as civvy pws, only problem was breaking off the turn knob on rocks or tree stumps...and once the bolt flange broke from stress on one hub...where all the warn hubs i had including many ffpws, w100-300 civvies and militarys, never had a problem except getting sticky if not cleaned and serviced every few years, the grease solidifies causing them to get hard to turn...easy to service the two piece as well as the one piece.. my faves are the warn automatics that came new on my 1967 w200 (red insert knob) my nephew now has the truck with over 400k mi they still work fine!
