need help

i have a jeep wrangler. i am going to do a locker in my front axle and need to know if there will be any affects on the road while i am in 2 wheel drive. like going around turns. is it also true that my front drivshaft will now spin constantly no matter if im in four wheel or two wheel?
any advice would be appreciated.

You should have virtual no effects from a front locker on the road in 2wd. Your driveshaft should already be spinning all the time anyways, because of the drivers wheel is always locked to the axle shaft. The passenger side is engaged/disengaged via a vaccumm actuator.

YJ front driveshafts do not normally spin in 2wd, because of the disconnect. TJ front d-shafts do normally spin due to no disconnect.

If you install a locker in the YJ the front shaft will spin in 2wd, so it is a good idea to have the d-shaft balanced when the locker is installed to prevent any d-shaft induced vibrations.
