Advice on hub nut / bearing retainer.

Looking for an opinion here concerning the D44 and D50 (F250) front hub bearing retaining nut washer assembly. My stock 94 Bronco and Stock 96 F250 front axles have the "double nut with multi-hole washer sandwiched between them" type retainer. Is there a better system out there that will work in each of the axle hubs? I have seen a one piece ratcheting nut assembly for other model years or even other makes, but I'm not sure if they are better or even available in my D44 or D50 setup. I've also seen some different systems advertised on "power block" on Spike TV. What do you guys think?

Yep, that's the tool to remove and install the nuts, but I'm looking to see if there is a better nut system. I don't know if I trust the current 2 nut and washer system used. The pins on the inner nut don't seem strong enough to hold the torque. Maybe it's just me?
