Agreed. I dont see what everyones big **** was against manual locking hubs. If you know you are going to be seeing snow, or mud, or a boat ramp, or loose gravel, or a floppy ******, or anything that might have a chance of requiring 4x4: Lock in the hubs before you leave, then when you need 4x4, pull the lever...

with technology that makes it where you dont have to fool with your hubs why would i want to go back, and with the 04-08 design if youre having any trouble and you want to be sure you have 4x4 unplug your vaccum lines, the fail safe for the system is to lock the wheels in
