iam not shure what youve gotta do to lock the axle on yours but..... the newer jeeps dont have axle disconnects at all ... ive owned newer and older styles and theres not difference driving in 2wd at all
I've not experienced any vibrations,might just have got lucky though.If you do get a vibration I don't think it costs much to have the drive shaft balanced.For a more reliable fix either install a posi lock or tj axle shafts.There is a link on here somewhere on how to make your own posi lock.

How about this, if you had the Jeep Spirit, you wouldn't abuse the rest of us trying to enjoy a nice day out wheeling by bringing your brokeass broken down junkyard crap out to play where it can't handle it?[/QUOTE]

As long as you have the fork holding the collar engaging the axle fixed in position you will be fine. I have used a small screw to keep the fork from sliding or vibrating out of position. I have never experienced any driveshaft vibration but if you do, it is not a big deal to have the driveshaft checked and balanced. Any effect on gas mileage is minimal.
A 89 yj with a 4.0 aw4 sye out of an 92xj. Now the hard part is done time to get it up in the air just a bit. Working on 8.8 with 3.73 and lsd for the rear. and new D30 hp with 3.73 .
For those who have not figured this out I'm old school but can handle the new too.
thanks for the input guys i just wanted to make sure it wasnt going to prematurly wear out any parts or damage anything, yes i did the c clip trick as was done in that write up. i have notice a slight vibration around 40 but when i get up to 50 it goes away, but when i put it in 4wd i do get a more noticable vibration, that makes sence about the drivshaft being out of balance, that helps alot. i will have that balanced as Louie4 did. i plan on doing the posi lock eventually. i actually was doing a solid shaft conversion with cv axle shafts and after i went to put the shafts and carrier back in i found out the diff axle seal did not fit so i put it all back together and did this. i will do a writeup on the axle conversion soon
