Yes you can only engage the lockers in 4-LO.

the sway bar will disconnect, the rear lockers will fully engage but my dash light for front lockers just blinks and blinks and blinks then laughs at me and then continues to blink

I see....I was asking because I have to be moving some to get mine to engage/disengage. The sway bar wont make a difference. Is this the first time you have attempted to use the lockers?

check the plug on top of your front axle that powers the locker. You can also check your fuse and I believe there is are relays under the hood you can check as well. They are located just to the left of the battery.

My 55 Willys didn't even have the possibility of them!!

My ZJ has them front and rear - not that they do anything. The Orvis rolls in corners WORSE than the Willys did...

I assume ur talkin a rubicon? Mines an 03 so slightly different, but when I first got it I tried the lockers in a parking lot didn't seem to be working. Seems to me they fully engage easier on at least dirt road where the tire can slip a little. Also the front seems to blink a lot no matter what, but I can tell its full locked.
