Warn 4wd hub breaks apart

I was wheeling with my CJ7 in the woods hunting this weekend and 4wd hub broke and two bolts broke off (see pic)... Where can I find a new hub? Or a better hub.

Something like this will work! This part is for an 81 but I'm sure you can find something that will work.

i got a new set from Qtech that are the Warn 5 bolt and swapped them out. I carry the old ones around for spares. Figured if the old ones lasted 30 years cant be too wrong....

or you can do an upgrade to the 6 bolt hubs....

I just ordered a set of Mile Markers from Q-tec for $93. They seem to be a bit more stout than the stock Warn 5 bolts.

Ouwch...... aluminium housing i guess?

Got Superwinch hubs myself, after the stock ones where worn-out. They have a steel housing with alu cap.
And..... they lock with 1/4 turn.
