I believe the new jeep grand Cherokee Quadradrive has locking differentials in both axels and the transfer case. From the factory.
I want one!

Depends on the type of front axle.Not all use external hub locks.

Point taken, it was meant as an encouragement to not use four wheel drive.

The right front axle is a two piece design. It has two ends that are splined, a collar slips over the splines to lock the two halves of the axle together ( a lot like a manual transmission ). Because the differential is "open", if one axle is not attached to a wheel the differential can not transmit power. So if the hubs are locked the differential will not work until the collar locks the two halves of the axle together. That is how this system gives you "shift on the fly".
