It will cause a little extra wear, and such a little MPGs, but the answer is no. Up in NH, feel free to keep 'em locked until the snow melts (June, right?).

No. Just more wear and tear on the front components. However, it's a good idea to lock them and run in 4wd every now and then to keep things lubed.

thanks guys. it's just a lot more convenient to leave em locked for when you need to switch to 4wd. i don't drive it much in the winter because of the salt... only when the pavement is dry. which isn't lately.. and yeah, june, july, august.. the snow will be gone..
