SHIFT ON THE FLY

thinking about ordering a new truck and debating whether to get shift on the fly like i always have. if i get it w/o and i have the floor mounted t-case shifter how does that work in the superdutys? i have had this in an older f150 back in the day but didnt have auto/lock hubs up front. if i go into 4 wheel drive will i have to get out and turn the hub locks after i put it in 4 wheel or ? i have had issues with the shift on fly at times with other trucks so thought manual would be more dependable. thanks

You will have to have them lock them before you shift into 4 wheel drive. If you don't you will just be in 2 wheel drive even if you shift to 4x4. So in other words its all manual hubs.

Oh and you can still shift on the fly but your hubs will need to be locked in first.

i would go manual. its a more simple design.

but, if you did get auto they last quite a while, and can be converted to manual pretty easily.

The auto hubs work on vacum, so there is more pieces in the system that can cause you issues such as leaks from hoses seals etc.

another problem, although not as common as the vacum is the motor for the electronic xfer shift.
if i had a choice i would get manual, the only problem youll probally ever have is the hubs getting sticky and hard to turn if not used alot.
