Default My own experience.....

I installed free wheeling hubs on an M37....... gained 4 to five miles per hour at the top end flat out........ but got greater economy driving with no tarp and the windshield folded down on the hood.... and it was a blast except for rainy days.

Unless a CMP is going to be driven extensively for long periods at highway speeds, I doubt if the trouble and cost of the conversion is worth while. For example .....Brian Ashbury drove his armored Scout car in convoy 10K on the Alaskan highway with a set of modern highway tires and with the front driveshaft disconnected and for that specific purpose it made sense. He reverted to bar thread tires and full time 4x4 upon his return.
