remove front shaft, mark yoke, put in 4wd, drive a few inches, see if yoke rotated?

I did it too as an ignorant newbie and it poured out a lot of fluid all along the street as I drove it. I would not do it again.

for this test all you would have to do is let your foot off the brake to see if it will move forward, not drive it up the street

Completely stock, and keeping it that way...

Oh, i lost mine off in the mud out in the trails, haha, so i had no choice. i have no idea where it went, but i had to take the jeep to welding shop and have them fix my yoke as i needed it done right away for the new shaft to be bolted in.. I broke one bolt head right off
