New member here and first post. I've been following this thread, plus the 2014 JK thread. I've also wondered why Jeep doesn't offer the Trak-Lok anti-spin (LSD) option on the Rubicon. At first I thought it wasn't available or compatible with the standard Rubi Tru-Lok, but noticed that Jeep did let both options be paired together on the rear of the 2013 Moab 24M limited edition. So, my original thoughts of not being compatible went out the window. Any comments about this factory combination? Thanks, Bill

Welcome to WF!

You can't have both at the same time. The Moab has an option for one or the other.

TJ Rubi's actually had a Locker with LSD. Best of both worlds.

Moab 24M Tru-Lok option trumps Trak-Lok?

So, the Tru-Lok option eliminates the Anti-Spin Differential Rear Axle that comes standard with the Pkg 24M - Moab Edition?

I read through this thread and it seems that it can help with traction control and help on slippery ice.

Is "anti-spin rear differential" the same thing as "LSD" that was mentioned several times? Thanks.
Yes, they are the same. Trac-Lok = Anti-Spin = LSD = Limited Slip

Why the limited slip isn't standard across the board is beyond me....

It's a must here in the land of winter ice and snow IMO, and most on lots never have the option.
