Re: 2011 WK: Electronic axles for rear AND front!

*** Update ***

All of the NEW documents being released by Jeep do not list the front diff as being electronic... I have two documents, one showing ELSD front and rear and one showing only the rear ELSD.

So what's going on??? Will front ELSD come later or perhaps next year? No idea here. The part numbers for the front ELSD are in the system, yet all current release info does not list a front ELSD. The plot thickens!

I have several new documents set for retail/dealer release, so far not a single one lists a front ELSD. Will keep digging, trying to get an advance copy of the FSM...

Ummmm, has anyone else noticed these pics are from a WK version NOT a WKII?
The WK2 is independent suspension all round, these pics obviously refer to a live rear axle, aka, WK.
WK's are still being made aren't they?

I'm thinking/hoping its part of the Offroad package that includes QuadraLift.
Milous do you see mechanical or physical reason a ELSD would not fit up front?
