Thanks to jl_john telling me about the Mopar locker wiring harness, I now have the ability to engage lockers in 2wd, 4 high, and 4 low. For those that asked “why would you” it’s great for going through sugar sand and mud in 4 high to get wheel spin and basically trail running with just rear locked in, you can get up over 20 mph without blowing up the engine. It’s a lot smoother when front and rear are locked as you don’t feel that brake dragging as the bld engaging and disengaging, and don’t have to worry about over heating the brakes. There is one small glitch, it throughs a dash code. For me, it’s not a big deal, at start up you get “service axle locker” then goes away, and a little chassis icon with exclamation point stays on over the fuel gauge. Hopefully the tazer will clear it. But for now I just leave factory wiring on and the other one capped off for daily driving.
Starts at 14:17 in the electric locker portion. But the meat of what you were told is at 16:17. This IMO is the most succinct video to understanding lockers in general.Someone tried to tell me the lockers have to reengage when you switch from drive to reverse and vice versa. Does this sound right to anyone?
It seems the slack is what they were talking about, the pins never come out but slamming on the skinny peddle back and forth in the mud can damage the gears and the pins.Starts at 14:17 in the electric locker portion.

But to answer your question, yes it sounds right.
