I've actually been having a 4x4 issue, so I've been reading a lot about it.
The downside about rigging the fork so it's always engaged is that the front axle is not balanced, and will cause some decent vibrations.
From what I've researched, if you use it as a DD, or if it goes highway speeds, having the fork always engaged isn't the best of idea.
There are ways to get around this. I can't really remember them.
But, honestly... I think the best bang for your buck deal is to get a Posi-Lock, something like this:
4x4 Posi-Lok Positive Axle Engagement System for Jeeps
There are other ones, more expensive and the like. But I think that has good reviews. (Not 100% sure), it is the second choice if you Google "Posi Lock Jeep YJ".
I've decided if my CAD actuator died, I'm going to replace it with that.
