Debating about replacing hubs before a road trip. Anyone have the vortex hubs? If so do you have the galvanized or e-coat finish? Or would you go with another brand?

I have vortex hubs. Only problems I've had was due to over tightening at the factory.... both plastic caps cracked within the first year. Other than that, they've been great.

Just ordered a set that are already packed and ready to go. Since I bought the ones that are already packed do I need to fill the cap with grease before I put it on? Or is just as simple putting them on, tightening the castle nut and putting the cap on?

Ordered the hubs have them on the trailer but the cap won't screw on, it's like they sent me the wrong cap, it will screw down about 3 times and then pop off the threads. Anyone else have this issue?
