You could actually notice a lock right in the front in a 30? I ran with mine for about 70k miles and never noticed it once. Unless I was in four wheel drive of course.

Shouldn't the vaccumn disconnect make it so it acts as if its still open when in 2wd?

Well thats certainly not the way it should be. I'm sure whatever is wrong with it could be fixed easy enough. It should be invisible in 2wd. Always. I would never run a $600+ locker in a 30, let alone one in a jeep that is a very occasional, light, wheeler.

I totally agree about not wasting money on an expensive locker for a dana 30.

Glad you got it taken care of. I DDed my XJ on 35s and had the front open and rear locked. I LOVED it. It wore the tires a little more and fishtailed more easily, but was 100x more predictable than the open diff and was super easy to handle. I swore I'd never have an open rear diff again after that.
