failed the roller test

i just got my 2000 wrangler sport last week. it has the optional d-44 rearend option, but i wasnt sure if it had the limited slip option also. we took it out to the old hummer dealer test track, which much to my surprise had an area where you could put the 2 front tires and the right rear tire on rollers. i engaged the 4 wheel drive and let out the clutch. 3 tires spinning the rollers and 1 tire doing notta. this is pretty much gonna be a street jeep with maybe some light 4 wheeling, but i really want to upgrade the diff to a limited slip or locker at some point. now i see why the instrument panel says PART TIME instead of 4 WD when you engage the transfer case, lol.

I dont get your comment but ok, a full time 4wd would react the same way. A 2wd with a limited slip or locker would have pulled off the rollers so 4wd actually would not have been needed. I would say if you are mainly street driving you should look at the limited slips like tru-trac or something. Or if you want the best of both worlds look at selectable lockers. Some of the selectable lockers are limited slips when unlocked and some are open diff when unlocked.
