Never! The liabilty is one that auto manufacturers have NEVER assumed. AFAIK the Wrangler Rubicon edition is the only Jeep to offer a true locker. Toyota has offered a real electric locker since at least 1986, but theirs can only be actuated when in low range, much like the Rubicon.

It may have come with a factory Limited Slip differential in the rear axle however.
