Question about 4wd, axle lock

I saw a link posted a while ago on one of the Jeep forums about how things such as 4wd and axle locks work. I did a google search and can't find that link. There are plenty of other sites which talk about 4wd but none that explain it as well or as clearly.

Can someone post up a link or two to helpful sites that would provide a good explanation? Thanks in advance.

Check out HowStuffWorks "How Four-Wheel Drive Works" & HowStuffWorks "Search". Pretty good links on how 4WD and differentials (open & locked) work.
