Aussie Locker in Front Dana 30

I want to put an Aussie locker in the front of my tj. My question is: will the locker be engaged when I am in two wheel drive? I don't think they would affect anything until I put it into four wheel drive. I looked on other threads but couldn't find anything. Thanks for the help!

If it helps it's a manual and has 33 inch tires on it. Thanks!

I believe if you have a disco on the passenger side axle you will be ok when in 2 wheel drive.

You won't feel the presence of a front mounted automatic locker in a TJ when it's in 2wd. While an automatic locker's normal state is to be locked, it only locks up hard after you shift into 4x4. In 2wd it unlocks for turns so easily you won't feel anything different. It will click during turns in 2wd but that's it. And the TJ has no need for an axle disconnect system like the YJ had.
