This is something I don't fully understand, I know what they do etc. I have a 2018 F250 4x4 with a plow on it. This is my first truck with the manual locking front hubs. Truck is also shift on the fly 4x4. So I turn the knob in the truck when the hubs are in auto (I have never touched them) and she pops into 4x4. No doubt it is going into 4x4 I know what that feels like. So when I plow with this truck often I have to cut the wheels pretty hard etc. and the front end seems to hop around a bit, I even understand why that is happening. My question is am I operating this truck correctly when plowing? I can find no answer that I am positive is correct. Some people say lock them and leave the locked. Others say lock them when plowing or the will constantly disengage when reversing when plowing.... I am not sue that is even happening. If just feels like I should be doing something different when I am plowing, I must be putting a fair amount of strain on the front end with the hopping etc. Anyone understand this totally?
