NEED QUICK ANSWER. Ok to drive with no hubs?

I have 1 hub that is stuck locked, I think I already wore out an axle u joint, can I just drive with them off for a day or 2 untill I get some replacements? I will put some grease in there so it doesn't rust. And also anyone that has switched fron factory auto hubs to aftermarket maual lockers do they just pop in like the factory ones do? And any dana 60 30 spline hubs work?
Or better yet, could I just pull the guts out of the hubs and put them back on?

All you need to do is pull the old ones out and the warn ones go in with a "jesus" ring. Everything you need is in the box with the warn hubs. I got mine at a 4x4 shop and they were cheaper than O'reilly's. Also make sure that your spindle bearing is good. If it goes out your hub will stay locked and you will spend $200 when all you need to spend is $12 to fix it. Take your wheel off, brake caliper and mount off, on the back of the hub assy there are 4 blots, take these off. Pull the whole assy off, turn it upside down and there will be a needle bearing there. That is the spindle bearing. Trust me I replaced hubs and still had the same problem, replaced the $12 bearing and all good.

Thanks for the info. I know I have one bad hub because with the hubs off I can only get one to unlock. I swapped the guts between the two and I still have one with a bad selector knob. What exactly is a Jesus ring? The big ring clip thing that holds the stock ones on?

That clip is replaced by one of those that is a pita to get out. The kind that makes 2 full circles and all of it goes down into the groove. You have to use a flat-head screw-driver and a pair of needle-nose and a helluva lot of patience to get out.
