I am in the process of ordering a new Rubicon, but they emailed this morning and said the Manual Transmission on Rubicon Unlimited is closed.... What does that mean? I don't want an automatic... If I wait, can I order a 2022 with a manual transmission??

I would hope so, I ordered a manual JLUR last week and already have a vin so this must be recent. I can't imagine that they'd discontinue the 6spd for 2022, there's just too much interest from people who can't let go (like myself).
Sorry to hear that though, I would be pissed and sad at the same time.

This isn't unusual. It happened to me and many others here. It could be closed due to an active recall or due to part shortages. It's usually temporary (couple weeks) so I suggest just staying in touch with your dealer.

Rumor has it orders for 2022s are opening up next week. They probably just quit taking orders for 6spds for the 2021 model year.
