TJ has what we call a "live" front axle. Because it doesn't have manual hubs the shaft will turn all the time even in 2wd. This is due to the live hubs in the TJ.
OP if you have the coin to do so I would do a manual locking hub. Which would then keep the shaft from turning while driving in 2wd and manual hubs gives a lot of benefits over a life axle.
Replacing the front driveshaft is the cheaper option though.
