the caps will cover it, depends what wheel u go with but they are only held on by 2 alen screws which i keep a alen key in my glove box so when i need to put it in 4wd it takes 2 seconds to take the caps off

thats what i was thinking i always have a small amount of tools with me anyways. but doesnt the auto feature mean that the hubs lock when i put it in 4wd? or is that just a free mode?

not sure mine only have "free" and "lock" on them....but im pretty sure with the auto setting u can still put it in 4wd when its in auto, i wouldnt be the best person to ask tho about that as i dont have the type of hub u do...id just carry a allen key in the glovebox just incase lol most wheels will come with one

As mentioned previously, I also have my front hubs covered. When I need to lock them in, I grab the allen wrench out of the toolbox and 30 seconds later, i'm ready to go.
