Sealing off vaccum lines with warn locking hubs

Is there anything that can be damaged by not sealing off the vaccum lines when changing to warn locking hubs?

Your vacuum pump will run whenever you put it in 4wd and your vents will switch to defrost.

Easy to plug it. I'm not sure why you wouldn't. I plugged min up under the hood with one 1/4" bolt in the hose off the solenoid.

remove possible issues

plug the knuckle port ( keeps crap out if the line ever failed)

plug the PVH solenoid Vacuum input ( eliminates possible vacuum leaks if any line or the solenoid fails )
