    First off, Welcome to TW.

    One thing you'll quickly learn is there is a huge amount of data on this site for just about every situation that comes up for our trucks. Though your questions a good one, it has been asked before. In fact, many times before. I did a quick search on "manual locking hubs" and got many results.

    Here are a couple:

    One thing I do when I want to go off pavement is lock in hubs. Then when I need 4x4 I just pull on my shifter. Ithink there is a section on converting to manual hubs. Keep looking. If you cant find it then search the database...

    P.S. Manual hubs are stronger (thats in my opinion)
