If you keep it in 2wd on the road you will be fine and will not have any issues with it.

I'll hear mine rachet occasionally on a really right turn at low speeds. If I flip a u turn with much speed I can hear it pretty well, but that's it. I run 85-140 gear oil in it to help quiet it down. All in all, best thing I ever did to my jeep

Congrats on the locker. I put a lock rite in my d30 list month. Last night was my first test. I pulled a Jetta that was buried up past its axles in the mud. When I pulled in reverse I felt the front axle lock and it pulled like an bull. Absolutely no wheel spin on the front wheels. On road I have no issues. No popping or unloading some say the have with auto lockers. The only way I can hear it click around corners is if I have the window down and sound system off and I have to listen closely to hear it. One of the cheapest best upgrades you can do. I don't have snow or ice in my area, but some guys say you gotta be careful driving in 4wd on slick surfaces.
