New Hub Advice

Hey guys. New to the forum as of today.
Proud owner of a 2001 F250 CC as you can see in the sig.

I had new powerslot rotors and Hawk pads put on a couple weeks ago and asked my mechanic to take a look at the hub when he put them on. My cousin does all my mech work. He likes to use the truck every now and then, so I get it for free. I had a problem a couple weeks ago with the 4x4 not working but I was hearing it lock in when I turned the switch in the cab. Just wouldn't pull right. It wasn't locking in. He said he noticed there was a dent in the hub on my wheel. Not sure how that got there, but figured I need to replace the hub since it won't work, and I'm looking for advice on which ones to get. Manual or autos? If I put in manuals, what do I need to do to cap off the vacuum line that locks them automatically?
Need some advice on what to do.

Thanks.

The Warn Standard hubs work great and come with a lifetime warranty, plus they're like $90 cheaper than the premiums...

As for the vacuum lines to plug, there are two vacuum systems on the truck, the hubs and the HVAC. From the vacuum reservoir, there are two lines. One goes to the front for the hubs, and the other goes to the cab for the hvac.

Don't really see anything about lifetime warranty on the standard hubs.

What about milemarkers? Any good to them??

I have mile markers on mine, they work fine. Took about 20 minutes to put them on.

Well, I'm swapping because I'm having problems with them right now, and I want to put something back on that will last. I don't really have to deal with cold snow much, but it only takes about 3 seconds to lock the hubs, so it's really not a big deal.

I bought my Warns from O'Reilly's (had them price match Advance Auto) and on the receipt, it says LIFETIME WARRANTY. Dunno if its just an O'Reilly thing or what.
