So does the Jeep go off road then? Either way, yes you can run one up front, I ran a lock-right for a few years in my TJ dana 30 which is for the most part the same. Not sure but I think the detroit will let you know its up there a bit more than the smaller drop in style lockers do. Most of the time you should not have any effect, maybe some clicking sounds, and in tight turns it might skip, and we will leave snow covered roads out for now since you only take short trips.. thus, save a few bucks, get a drop in locker and be happy.
