The TJ's front axle hubs cannot be disconnected from the axle shaft so the front driveshaft will always turn when you are driving. So long as the wheels are on the ground, you can't rotate the front driveshaft unless you install manual hubs and unlock them.

Remember that having a different opinion doesn't also require one to be a jerk when expressing it.

When you have a choice, buy American.
