Anyones auto hub lock stopped working?

Just wonding how common it is for the auto hub locking function to stop working on these trucks. I'm need to get new center caps for my M/T classics II wheels and I'm considering getting some dome's on all 4 wheels which would cover up the manual hub locks on the front. I don't use 4wd much only in the winter time, truck is an 03 with 78K. What's everyone's opinion?

Thanks.

If you the auto is not working the you def don't want to cover the manual hubs lockers up. It could be many things that have stopped your auto hubs from working. Start withe looking for a vacuum leak somewhere on the system. Start with the driver side hub and go from there to see if you have any broken lines that are leaking and go from there.

Sorry, maybe I gave the wrong impression. My auto hubs still work perfectly. I was just wondering how common it is for them to malfunction and if it would be foolish for me to cover them up simply just for looks. Thank you for the info though, maybe someday it'll come in handy.

Depends on if you have couple hundred bucks burning a hole in your pocket or not. More than likely it can be fixed with finding a simply vacuum leak. Or it could be a leaking o ring inside the hub. I just went ahead and did away with the auto hubs locks and went with warn.
