04 Xterra, Warn manually locking hubs.
Is there any issue with switching into 4Low but keeping the hubs unlocked? The way I understand it, essentially everything up front will be spinning (cv axles upstream) but because the hubs are unlocked no power will be transferred to the front wheels. So you'd basically have a 2Low set-up, correct?
Any issue with doing that? The reason I ask: sometimes on steep/slow descents it's nice to be in low gear and engine-brake instead of riding the brakes. I don't need 4x4 for that, just a low gearing ratio - wondering if I could be lazy and just switch into 4Low or whether I need to get out and lock them hubs?
