Freewheel hubs


Not really a problem, just a question. Is it O.K. to travel short distances with the hubs locked in 2H. Say between one lane and the next or in this snowy weather even, or do you really have to be in/out like a jack in the box to keep changing them? Having come from permanent 4WD I find it a real pain.


doesnt matter if you leave the hubs locked, the main reason for unlocking them is fuel economy as when you unlock them it saves having the drive shafts and all the other mechanical bits turning, so probably saves a bit of wear and tear as well.
