No, leaving the hubs locked will cause both front tires to spin at the same rate. When going around corners (on dry pavement), the inside tire is supposed to turn at a slower rate than the outside tire. If the hubs are left locked, you will destroy the axle.

Is it okay to leave hubs on the 4wheel drive in lock position all the time?

It is ok to leave your hubs locked in depending on how far you want to go. I myself live on a mountainside and normally leave mine locked in when I stay near home going to town or something like that. When I hit any amounts of interstate I make it a rule of thumb that when I hit interstate the hubs are unlocked. It will decrease you fuel mileage I have noticed as well. You will be OK leaving it locked in around home but not all the time.

You can keep your hubs locked if you wish. Or, you can leave the transfer case in gear if you want. You can't do both. ,,,,,,,,,,,,, Reason to realese the hubs and case: because you are using power and fuel to run parts that are not needed, Its A waste.,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Reason you cannot leave in 4X4 all the time: You notice that the vehicle slowes down when you turn the steering wheel? Well, That's the drivetrain binding up from massive stress on the gears and other parts because the tires are not traveling in an equal distance.
