I don't think you have anything to worry about with the T-case. luke, tubzz, dockboy, and imelmo all run (to the best of my knowledge) stock t-cases. Of course they don't run that much power or very many passes down the track

One up side to not having them is that you can use 2wd low.

To answer your question there is no such thing as a "heavy duty automatic locking hub". Since your gonna be launching your truck on asphalt (Im assuming drag racing and the asphalt part) you should really get the Warn Premium hubs.
