Hickoryhouse I suppose it is the Trac-Loc that I was referring to. I have been told that there is a marker saying to use different type of lubricant in the axle thanks to the Limited slip.

I take it the Trac Loc diff doesn't make a difference or is it just a POS?

4Jeepn 4.0L good pick
stick or auto is fine
Dana 44 rear is good. Has metal drain plug vs plastic one for dana 35

some Non rubicion versions did come with a lsd...trac-lock..worthless really.

What is this badge your are talking about?

catITguy I may be wrong, but I think the only current wrangler with any special diff is the Rubicon edition, which has locking differentials. I believe the sport and standard wrangler come with your 'normal' diff, where all the torque goes to the wheel that is spinning.

Having said that, you can add a locking differential to either axle for anywhere from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars, depending what you want.

Dream come true!

I am about to buy my first Jeep! I have wanted a CJ7 since I was a child but as I have aged I have watched the Wrangler mature too.

I have a question though, I know that the there are three things that I need in a Wrangler... I need a Standard Tranny, a 4.0 I6 and a limited slip diff. I also know that there is a badge on the "pineapple" at the 1 o'clock position if it has one and that there should be a badge in the glove box too, theoretically.

If I can't find the limited slip, how much of a difference does it make?

Sorry for the ignorance on these options, but I have been working on Camaros and Pontiacs my whole life thanks to the Dad, this is the first time I get to go off road!

Thanks for any help you can give, it will make my search much easier. I start looking on Saturday!
