    Noticed today that the North Edition is on the "Build Your Wrangler" choices. Appears to be available with the 2.0 powertrain only. This edition and the Rubicon Recon are 2.0 powered. The Sky One Touch is just a $1900 option.

    Saw one in the wild earlier this week. Looks like a nice fully loaded Sahara.

    My Sahara is the North edition. It's basically just all the cold weather stuff put into one package to save you money (we saved almost $2k!). Mine was missing the badge, so the dealer ordered one for me.

    Did you ever get your badge?

    No, but I was told it's waiting for me. My dealership is about 90 minutes away and we had some other small stuff on order so we left the soft top there and told them we would come back for it all when everything arrived. The last I heard it was scheduled to be delivered this past Tuesday (so it should be there now).

    But where do I put it? On the rear gate (where Jeep would have put it) or on the side by the "Jeep" badge (where I feel like it would look better)??

    It does look like a great package! Many of the must-have options are already included --i.e., hardtop, 8.4" screen, Cold Weather group, automatic transmission.

    Too bad neither Selec-Trac, LSD nor the V6 are available.

    I guess it will depend how many you get. If you get two, you can put them on each side; if you get one...it goes on the tailgate.

    ? Selec trac is included... I thought for sure the LSD was as well, but I only see the anti-spin. That's not the same thing? (LSD is something I'm not too familiar with.)

    Not in the US. Neither Selec-Trac nor LSD even appear as available options under "Sahara North". Seems like a big omission for what is supposed to be a winter package.

    Yes, they are the same thing. On regular Sahara, LSD is standard with Selec-Trac, and a stand-alone option with Command-Trac.

    Selec-Trac is included in the package. The package is worth well over the listed package price, if added as individual options to another model. Below snips from a window sticker:

    Interesting. Selec-Trac is not even mentioned on the US Build and Price. It only lists one engine, one transmission, one gearing. That is it.

    That makes a big difference.

    Thank you for sharing.

    NICE! I should note that we were surprised by the package when we drove to the dealer to place the order. We had discussed it several times over the phone, but the North package had just been released (literally that morning), so that may be why I didn't get a badge. I definitely did get the North package though as it was included in my build sheet and came with the trail rated kit (that I didn't want anyway). Nothing else was missing. :)

    The one I saw was at a light stopped in front of me, and I first noticed it because of the badge on the tailgate . It took me a minute to figure out what I was looking at as I had not seen one before.

    That all said, if it was me and I was putting it on myself, I would put it on the front driver side by the Jeep badge.

    Me too, but I can't decide if I want it where Jeep would put it, or where I think it would look better. LOL
