If you get all 4 wheels off the ground and turn the back wheels, the front ones wont turn when in 2WD, and vise versa.

I have to believe that is completely false. The Dana 30 has remained unchanged in both the XJ and TJ for quite awhile. There really isn't even a hub in my TJ. The outer shaft rides on a hub bearing bolted thru the knuckle.

Apparently, 06 TJ's have automatic locking hubs. According to Cars.com 06 Wrangler TJ SE specs.

Automatic locking hubs according to Cars.com are:

Automatic locking 4WD wheel hubs
The spring-loaded hub automatically engages on the fly when the transfer case is shifted from 2-wheel drive into 4-wheel drive. The application of torque to the axle causes the mechanism inside the hub to slide in and lock.
Primary Benefit:
Automatic locking hubs are convenient for occasional off-roading or when road conditions are rapidly changing, and they eliminate the need to exit the vehicle to manually lock the wheel hubs.

So if i put it on a lift the front driveshaft and front tires will not spin in 2 wheel drive, correct?

Need Help!!! 06 TJ SE

First, I installed a 4 inch Pro-Comp Lift on my TJ SE and have some vibes coming from the rear drive shaft (around 30mph and 45-60mph). I installed the transfercase lowering kit and lowering bracket for the 4 wheel drive handle and my SYE and CV driveshaft is in the mail. Here is the question, should my front driveshaft be spinning even though it is in 2 wheel drive? Did my automatic locking hubs engage somehow? Is the vibration causing enough resistance to cause my automatic locking hubs engage? I was thinking about puting my jeep on a lift and puting it in drive to to see what happens. Any suggestions, ideas?
