I had a right front stuck locked for I don't know how long. I started getting a vibration on that wheel, and that entire hub was worn out and had to be replaced. I do not suggest running with the hubs in the locked position at all times. It will cause wear and tear. Your tires are driving your front end, and the transfer case. Kinda backwards from the way it's supposed to work. Sending power from the transfer case to the tires. This is just my reconmendation and my opinion. I've ran 4x4's for awhile now and if there were ok to be locked all the time, then there wouldn't be a hub there for the option. Trust me, I know it's not convient(sp) but, nor will replacing your transfer case when it blows from all those 4x4 launches. Sorry, don't mean to be a Grinch, I've seen too many transfer cases blown due to loading them up in such a manner.
Again, I'm very sorry to sound like a turd head. Just my $0.02
