OK, so I'm starting to really think about ordering a new JLUR. Do we have any confirmation about what supsension and front axle is found on the XR?

1) I notice all the literature calls the front axle the Dana M210 Wide HD (DJV). Is the heavy duty DJV different than standard M210 in the Rubicon? I've seen comments that they have eliminated the front axle disconnect (FAD). Has that been confirmed?

2) Anything confirmed on the springs and shocks offered in the XR?

Giving this a bump since it seems the Xtreme Recons will be arriving soon.

The other threads regarding the XR have a lot of information on them.

I just saw a pic on another thread of an XR and you can tell the knuckles on the front axle are steel and NOT aluminum.
