front diff locking?
should my front diff ever lock...I get a slight on and off tug at the wheel making tight turns under power in FullTime and pretty severe pull as if the diff is locked in part-time 4x4. I was under the impression that part time only loccked the T-Case not the diffs. As I've only had the car for a week I will be taking the car into the dealership in another week to get checked out and was wondering if they need to do something there. Is the diff suppossed to do that..Is a locking diff what I'm feeling?

sorry, but the only factory jeep with lockers is the jeep wrangler rubicon. not sure what t-case you have, but when in 4 part time, it locks the driveshafts together...if you are on solid pavement, you will destroy your t-case....full time 4 uses a differentiated t-case, i think, read the manual to see what kind is is before you need to shell out 2,000 buck for a new t-case. good luck!

I had a similar problem. I had a 93 with SelecTrac. In 2HI it always drove really strange when I was trying to park or when making tight turns, like it was in 4HI. I brought it to the dealer and they said that I needed 4 new tires.? Apparently, because I didn't rotate enough, (who does?)the rear tires were more worn down than the front tires causing the rears to spin faster, in turn confusing the tranfer case into thinking that they were slipping. The new tires worked and I learned an expensive leason--always rotate.
