There is a good reason to switch to manual locking hubs, it keeps the front bearings from wear out in your d30. There are so many threads on here about worn out front axles. Is it worth the money, that could be debated. Since you can pick up another axle cheap, probably not. In the old days, all the trucks I ever owned had manual hubs, never replaced more than a pinion seal. Even with the TC in 2wd the drive shaft spins and wears out the pinion bearing. Otherwise no one on here would ever replace the pinion bearing, but everyone does.
