How dangerous or damaging is it to drive in 2wd with the front hubs locked? Will it do any damage to drive say 5km on the road before getting off road and selecting 4wd. i have heard mixed reports, so hopefully you blokes may know!
thanks

won't damage anything. simply wears the tires and front axle/drivesharfts out quicker. also the extra drags means slightly higher fuel consuption.

its only driving onroad in 4x4 that breaks things.

when I picked my New Navara up from the dealer they said to leave the hubs locked for the first 500km's just to allow everything to get lubricated properly etc, so I cant see it hurting much over a short time...

Yes i know this is an oldish post :)
