Need advice!
 
I am about to buy a 2012 wrangler unlimited ... They have two I'm looking at one with LSD, 3.75 gear ratio and towing package the other with out. Both with a manual transmission... Is it worth having the extras if so what are the benefits?

IMO yes. but what do you plan to do with your new JKU? if it's not a rubi, and you lift it... somewhere down the road you're going to throw bigger tires on it. having a 3.73 (not sure about the 3.75, maybe a '12 thing :hide:) makes it a little easier to turn the bigger wheel and tire combo. yep.. i just said combo. :rofl:

and if you're not rock crawling the LSD will give you all the capability you need. i'm running 35's with a 3.73 (2010 JK) with LSD and it's been fine for me. but i'm not rock crawling and don't really need lockers. someday i'd like em...

Having a manual with 3.73 gears is perfect. You can easily run 35's without a regear. It'll be easier on your engine and tranny too. If I were you I would absolutely get the 3.73 gears

I would go with the 3.73 gearing....best $50 you can spend!

Yes on the first one, no on the second. An easy decision.

Without a doubt get the 3.73 and LSD if you can get it. I special ordered so I could get both of those options

All else being equal, you should get the 3.73 and the LSD. Both are well worth what Jeep is charging for them. The benefits of each have been hashed over in a zillion threads, but the point is that 3.73 will be better than 3.21 and an LSD will be better than an open differential. If given the choice, you should get them.
