permanently locking vaccum hubs same as leaving manual locking hubs locked?

k so alot of this stuff is new to me and im really trying to understand it all. so if i do this- http://www.therangerstation.com/Maga...04/offroad.htm, to my 2000 ranger, as far as the drivetrains basic operation, its basically the same as putting in manual locking hubs, and leaving them locked 100% of the time?

yes

you really want manual locking hubs though. Someone was texting me yesterday about it and he said he gained 2mpg when he went from this mod to manual locking hubs
