Auto versus manual hubs

My truck used to have auto lockers but it was changed over to manuals before I got it. I've got to get new lockers because someone stole one off the drivers side. Should I go back to autos or stick with manuals?

One of the things i was looking for when i bought my truck was manual transfer case and manual hubs (i know you can switch auto hubs to manual). My step dad and alot of my buddies had trouble with auto hubs in the past. I like having full control of what i want to happen and not rely on electronics and vaccum to fail. But to each his own as manual parts can fail too. Now if you bring in the convienence factor when everything is working correctly into play, you cant beat the auto system.
