4x4 HELP

easy question.....so the front hubs are vacume driven with the shift on the fly switch..... but if i lock my front hubs in and turn the switch, the transfer case is not vacume driven right? that part is just electrical?

(so if i have a vacume leak in my system my transfer scae should still lock in with the switch correct?) as long as my hubs are locked in i should be in 4x4 all day?

yes if you manually lock in your hubs and push the button for 4wheel drive you will have 4wheel drive. Make sure you plug up your leak or just bypass the whole 4wheel drive part so you don't burn up your vacuum pump.
