I need some advice here.

My 4wd wasn't working today. It snowed 3" and when I was driving to work I engaged my 4wd multiple times and still no 4wd. After work I drove around trying to engage it again. This time it would engage and work for about 15 seconds and then quit. I assume its my pulse vacuum hubs acting up again?

So here's where I need the help. 2 years ago me and my dad took my truck into the dealership to let them fix it. Heres exactly what they did according to the receipt:

"PERFORMED 4X4 DIAG TESTED AND FOUND VACUUM LINES AT WHEEL ENDS RIPPED AND DEFERIORATED ALSO VACUUM SOLENOID DOESNT PULSE FOR RELEASE SIDE REPAIRED VACUUM LINESS
PARTS: 0 SO F87Z9H465BA VALVE ASY
0 SO F87Z3A785AA TUBE - VACUUM
1 NPN VAC LINE
LABOR TOTAL: 212.00
PART TOTAL: 2.99
OPERATION TOTAL: 214.99

So now here I am 2 years down the road experiencing the same problems. If I take it into the same dealership will they help me out or charge me another 215 dollars? Should I just invest in some rugged ridge manual locking hubs and have my uncle help me install them?

I don't think I could do it.

Do you still work at a ford dealership DJ? What's would you guys do if a customer came in 2 years later experiencing previous issues that he thought had been fixed?

For the same price as fixing that pos 4wd system you can convert it and never have another hub issue

Yeah I'd get manual hubs or convert it to an 01 before I'd ever put up with that vacuum hub shit

Just get manual hubs. You can get them fairly cheap now a days. You wouldn't need any help installing. Just pull your hubcap off pull the vacume hub off and pop the new one on. What you could also do is take your front wheels off and see of a line popped off? Also you can mod your stock ones so they are engaged all the time (link already posted)

Well I just took it out for a drive with my dad and it was working flawlessly. So idk. I'll drive it like the way it is and if I run into another problem I'll get the manual hubs.
