Removing Warn Locking Hubs

Hey y'all. Tore down my Dana 35 off my CJ this week and realized the locking hubs are in rough shape... I really don't plan on off-roading this jeep... Can I go back to the basics pretty easily, to no locking hubs?

The best option is to replace the lockouts if they are damaged, that way they are there and working when you need it. The axle came equipped with lockouts from the factory and I'm not sure if there is a delete option. If they are damaged and causing problems, you might get by with gutting the units and just installing the cap and handle to seal the ends. BTW your axle is a Dana 30
