Have them cancel the order and create a new one, not because of the LSD, but for the rear D44.
Whoa! Suddenly I'm ok with buying a Sahara, provided it gets the LSD.

My dealer forgot to add the LED package on my original build and already had a new one ordered for me since it was too late to add it. If it's a good dealer, they will make it up to you. They build the Wranglers very quickly, so it should not hold you up much. My new order went to D1 in 4 days. It takes 19 hours to build one. Shipping is what takes 2-3 weeks sadly. The small extra wait is worth many years with vehicle you want.

That's the one item that I kick myself for not ordering. For $560 it's SO MUCH WIN, a beefier Dana 44 and tires that aren't meant for a Toyota Sienna.

Hi - Just got my build sheet for my JL Sport S and noticed the dealer forgot to add the LSD and all-terrain tires. Obviously the dealer can take care of the tires, but how big of a deal is NOT having the anti-slip? I'm tempted to have them start over, but my build is already two weeks in and about two weeks from completion, or so I'm told. Opinions?
Start over. It's a non-negotiable option on a Jeep.

Yes. It is that important, IMO.

Hey, my Sienna has better tires than those HT's!

Holy cow! That's an enormous mistake! The rear LSD is as important a feature on non-Rubicons as the 2-speed transfer case is. The Dana 44 axle is a key feature, too! The Dana 44 (M220) and LSD combined make that $695 order line the best deal in Jeepland. Don't go home without it.

is the anti-spin kit an LSD? the website didnt really explain it very well. i have the anti-spin kit. just not sure if i have lsd or not. i thought the lsd was an option on higher up models (i have basic Sport).

would worn out LSD be covered under warranty or is that just considered a wearable part?
A worn out LSD is a covered by warranty item. Anti-spin and limited slip are much the same. A Dana 44 (M220) is the Holy grail.

What's your planned use/mods? It'll only matter in moderate to heavy off road use and if you plan to run larger (35"+) tires. If you plan to do light off roading and keep it stock it won't make much of a difference.
Disagree. Can come into play in 4 hi or 2 hi on-road in slippery conditions like rain or snow. In that way it is better than lockers for on-road use.
