Manual hubs

I was wondering if anyone who's swapped manual hubs for the stock auto hubs has seen an increase in their gas mileage? My toyota PU and my brothers' F250 seem to have less drag than my YJ.

By all means. Your junk should be faster too. I installed Warn Premium Hubs on my 60 from a set of drive flanges and the lack of rotating mass in the front shaft really made a difference. I've noticed it on long drives home without a front shaft due to damage. There is a big difference without it spinning. If you want to know how much better you can always drop your front shaft for a week and get some real world experience before dropping the money on lockouts. If you still have the Dana 30 it is going to get expensive.

Thanx. I thought the hubs were causing some drag. Now I just have to look around and figure out my options.
I appreciate the comeback.
And have a good Thanksgiving!
