I’ve searched around for weeks but can’t find anything on when you can order a JL with Xtreme Recon paired with a manual transmission. Does anyone have any insight?

thank you

All of them!
You can't order XR package with a manual. It is only available with the 3.6l and automatic, 25R package

Jeeps lots of jeeps
Maybe next year. Maybe never. They haven't made announcements.

The centerpiece of the Xtreme recon package was the manual transmission option. It was discussed at length in the presentation and notes in the press release. It’s what gives them the crawl ratio crown against Bronco:

Wow!! If 4:88s are added as an option (as the article indicates) before my order sees any progress I may have to cancel and submit a new order!!

When I ordered mine (8/21) I asked if there was anyway to order the XR package with a manual. They said there was no way they could do it. They are limited by what's in the order guide. Here's to hoping!!

My hope is that it’s released when 22 orders start in October. Or sooner. Fingers crossed. Wish there was better info.

Any word on if manual transmission will be available with Xtreme Recon once ‘22 orders open up in the coming days?

I'm right there with ya, jaybird124, impatiently waiting an announcement myself, hoping before tuscadero goes away.

Also, I have a bad feeling the 4.88s are going to be "late availability" at launch. Just seems the way things have been going these days.

Yes it will be!
I think we've been here before, lol

We are still awaiting this. I am really hoping for some Xtreme Recon 4.88 action here.

We are all waiting on pins and needles, as I'm sure all of you did I checked the Nov build sheet and still no luck. I hope Ford can push us into the promised land!

Indeed! But if it does come... Can I change my current order? I don't quite have a VIN assigned yet but I'm expecting it any day.
I'm also getting an Ursa Minor roof which will barely fit in my garage. XR means it definitely won't fit so either I street park it or air down once in a while to fit in.

Shoot, I have no idea about all that changing stuff truthfully. I am still an enthusiast/non-owner. I just really want to wait to get all the goodies I want without having to do too much aftermarket.

But, that Ursa looks pretty sweet. Super high speed low drag.
