Re: axle questions

Here are a few ways.

Jack up one tire and then the other with the transfer case in neutral. Try turning the driveshaft. If you can't turn it, it's working.

Jack up both tires with the transfer case in neutral. Turn one tire. If the other tire turns the same way, it's working. Sometimes it will ratchet if you get the locker in just the right spot.

Find an empty parking lot with dry pavement. Turn the steering wheel all the way to one direction. When you have your foot on the gas, you should hear the inside wheel chirping. When you let off the gas, you should hear it clicking.
