Any advice on side airbags & TrakLok limited slip differential?

Hi...getting a 2103 Sahara 4dr. the order pushes thru on Tuesday, but I'm stuck on 2 options: the supplemental front seat side airbags and the trak lok limited slip rear differential? My salesguy is all about the differential and I'm leaning towards the airbags, but may go with both just thought I'd ask for some imput...so if ya got any advice feel free to shoot it my way... it would be greatly appreciated...
lottsa thx,
Hope

Funny I read your quote before i even noticed your reply...lol..."definitely"? please elaborate...A friend says if it has traction control then to pass, but another says its totally needed for off roading, but bad in rainy conditions...
oh and i just noticed by 2013 fumble, sorry bout that but i just had to endure an hour long convo on the Kiss concert that went down this weekend so I'm a little loopy lol And nothing personal Kiss fans because i'm one too, just getting a little past my bedtime...

Just keep in mind, you won't use the LSD if your not alive to do so!
Safety first, especially for your loved ones.

If I could go back in time, I would def get LSD and side impact. When financing, it's barely noticable . . .

Good point Big Lew...guess if i only had myself to worry about I'd throw caution to the wind, but have a niece that will probably be borrowing it for the beach, so I definitely should be taking that into consideration...thanx for your imput...

I ordered the side air bags and would recommend them as the Wrangler doors by their nature are likely not as strong as a conventional vehicle doors.
If you plan on doing any off roading then I would go for the lsd also.
