Not by itself. Here is a quick test passed on to me by Wind_Rocker:
- block the front wheels to prevent the jeep from rolling;
- put the transmission in neutral;
- release the parking brake;
- jack one of the rear wheels off the ground and try to spin it by hand.
If you have an open differential the wheel will spin freely. If it is difficult or impossible to turn the wheel you have a limited slip differential... assuming you don't have lockers and have them in the locked position. If you have a limited slip differential you should find an "LS" at the end of a line of text on that hard to read tag on the rear differential.
