Dana 60 Powerlok stuck

I need some help with my Dana 60 rear. The unit was installed in my '41 Willys project car back in 2005. Since the vehicle is still under construction, the rear has never been filled with gear oil, and has esentially been sitting dry for quite a while.
The problem is that the rear wheels now will not turn independently. It rolls fine on the ground back and forth, but when it's jacked up each wheel will not turn independently. I don't know if it's just because the clutches have never seen any lubricant or what. Could they be siezed up somehow?
The car is currently in for body/paint and the shop called me and told me of the problem when they removed the rear wheels.
I'm thinking that because it's been sitting dry for so long that the clutch packs may just be stuck.
Any thoughts as to the cause, and what the remedy is, would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Steve

What is the problem? A Power Lock is suppose to be locked up until there is enough torque from turning a corner that the clutches will slip a little. You don't want it to slip any other time.

Don't sound like a problem to me either. It will take 400ish Ft lbs to break it free.
