Do I need to plug my vacuum lines when I put in new hubs?

I bought the mile marker hubs and was reading up to try and get some advice and I see a lot of people plugging vacuum lines.

Do I need to do this? And if so what is the reason and advantage of it?

that is not entirely true

it would only divert to defrost for about 20 seconds ( the avg vacuum signal duration) if the mile marker hubs are not airtight

but it's best to block the vacuum line at the ESOF solenoid on the pass fender well

and at the knuckle this will prevent any possible issues

Any pictures of the ESOF solenoid? I havnt seen any pictures yet.

I have manual locking hubs so they wouldnt have vacuum hooked up to them anyways would they?

no they wont hook up to vacuum.
you just need to cap the line at the knuckle and the line.

theirs only a brake line and the esof line.
its easy to tell the difference.
just cap the line farther up.

I have the 449 mile marker hubs and I got my old hubs out and I noticed that the mile marker hubs have shorter teeth then the factory ones?

Is this normal or did they send me the wrong hubs?

the stock ones are manual and auto.
your new manual hubs do not need the vacuum lines.
my warn ones are shorter than my stock ones.

Ohhh Ok i understand now.

So with these mile marker hubs they are fully manual? But it will still go in 4x4 the same and everything?

I got the hubs in I was making that more difficult then it should of been The mile marker hubs directions said to oil the hubs and to not pack them with grease does that sound right?
