I shift my 18 in my CJ5 at speed sometimes. I dont even press the clutch. I just shift it and it seems to work fine. I always leave my hubs locked, because I use it on the trail more than anything, but i have never noticed a difference in gas mileage or any wear.

One thing to remember, if your running with the hubs engaged a lot you will want to service those spindle bearings. These things are never lubed and water gets into them either rusting them solid or causing the bearings to disintegrate. At highway speeds this can eat your stub axle or ruin your locking hub. It will also cause all kinds of vibrations.
