Diff lock question in 2014 Laredo

ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1432128493.477156.jpg
Ok, excuse my ignorance (only been a jeeper/4wder for 5 months) but I have a question regarding this pic. I just went for a 4wd and noticed this padlock figure come up on my dash on the drivetrain screen. I take it this means the rear diff has locked in but I thought this was not standard? Does anyone know if this is the case? The only options I know of on my car is the diesel and quadralift. I thought locking diffs were in the off-road pack.
Thanks in advance

Re: Diff lock question in 2014 Laredo

That pic means the transfer case is sending equal power to the front and rear. No WK2 has a rear "locker". If you have Quadra drive II, you have an electronically controlled limited slip in the rear. If you have Quadra track II, the truck used the brakes to force power to the wheel(s) with the most traction. It's called BLD (break lock differential)
