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.
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?
