I bet another nice thing manual hubs would give you is an effective 2Lo. You could disable the hubs manually and then select 4Lo. How great would that be when working the boat trailer at the ramp?

Missed another big plus of manual hubs. If you break something in the diff, or the front DS, you can just unlock and drive home to fix it.

Plus the beauty of the hub fuses from Warn. I would MUCH rather replace one of them than anything on the driveline!

Manual hubs are the only way to go for good reliable offroading, but for a mainly daily driver, the live hubs do the job quite well.
