Re: Locking Hub Questions?
You can lock the hubs manually and leave them that way. As long as the transfer case is in 2WD you will be OK. But you may have a slight decrease in fuel mileage, and perhaps a little more "road noise". The front wheels will have a little more rolling resistance.
I've lived in places where I locked the hubs at the first snowfall and unlocked them about the first of March. Never had a problem.
