Went to dealer today to order String Gray.
Tried to order Sahara: Manual with AntiSpin Diff Rear Axle (Dana 44) and a number of other options.
On computer to order all manual Sahara's are yellow and furthermore AntiSpin Rear Axle is grayed out.
Dealer says doesn't know why, but it appears that you presently cannot order a Manual Sahara (nor AntiSpin Diff Rear Axle).
Anyone have insight?

I’m pretty sure you can’t get anti-spin in manual. There’s been discussion of that in a few threads here... I suggest a search to confirm.

That's not correct. It's actually required for manual.

Yup, you can't get "Selec-Trac" with manual but yes on LSD. My dealer told me on Friday there was a delay on manuals but also that my vehicle was hitting the line on Monday. So who knows. Lots of misinformation out there.

I have a manual on order. I ordered LSD and it was an extra cost option. Good thing is that upgrades the tires.

Yeah, I was thinking of selec-trac. My bad. I haven’t spent much time on Sahara stuff since I’m getting a Rubi. I should have just let someone else answer. Lol

I ordered mine three weeks ago. I wonder if they had enough to fill orders up to now.

A manual JL, or a manual SAHARA JL?

If they locked all manuals, I'm darn glad I got my order in last week, and that they allowed Sting-Gray to overlap a few days of manual availability. Maybe that means everyone with a 2-door stick is in Job 1.

My sport is a manual with LSD, not required just extra. Glad I picked it up given this and the price increases.

not sure but JL Dealer seemed to confirmed that at least Sahara manuals can't be ordered.
