I'll be the odd ball here... I like the PVH better.
I like being able to choose from 2wd, 4wd, 4wd LO, and 2wd LO. It has come in handy.
I like that if I break a CV I can unlock the hub and keep going, not worrying about the broken CV binding up, or flopping round beating on other suspension parts.
I like that I don't have to have the hub or axle to hold the bearing together. I can pull the whole unit out and drive around like normal if I had to.
What I don't like is the poor way the hubs attach to the bearings. If they could have fixed that it would be an almost unbreakable system.
I've been out with trucks with trucks with broke Live Axle CV's, it pretty much sidelines them for the entire rest of the trip. Where as I ran around with a broken CV for almost a year and I couldn't even tell it was broken (and it was DESTROYED) besides the fact I didn't have 4wd.
So there you have it, probably the one guy on here that likes PVH.
EDIT: Though, I must say, I have gone through three AVM hubs in the last year. Two fell off and one sheered in half. So I too wish there was a better option, like say Warn. But whatever.
Imagine if sharks could walk on land... Scary.
