    I left my front hubs locked out since my last off road adventure a month and a half ago, Is this bad? Its a 10 bolt with a 208 t case...I have recently changed the oil in the front and serviced the t case..I dont know if it matters or not thought somebody out there might know.

    factory visor sticker says that all vehichles equipped with locking hubs should run for at least a mile a month with the hubs locked in just to lubricate everything in the front end.
    My dad used to lock his in at the start of hunting season and wouldn't unlock them until the end of January just because during that time we were off road so much that it was simply a time saver+ if we hit a patch of snow or ice it was just a pull to 4 hi to have full control.
