Locked hubs..

A few people I've read just leave their stock hubs locked year round.. is this ok? My ESOF isn't functioning..maybe it is..

I've serviced my hubs and tested the esof but my a/c went to defrost. After a few minutes it will start blowing normal again while in 4x4.. could it be a slow vacuum or does it automatically switch back after a while?

Thanks!

B.

I have manual locking hubs, i had them locked unknowingly from the factory when i first got the truck and it would click when i turned hard. I could hardly do a U turn because i couldn't turn all the way. It was more of a bumping sound than a click.

i wouldn't and i dont. just leave them locked when you got some nasty weather or going out in the woods.

i lock mine at the track and leave them like that, unlock when i get back on the road

i hardly drive the truck in the winter so for me i dont even bother with locking them. i dont ever go off road so again i dont deal with all that
