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

This is ridiculous, Taking an already versatile Quadra drive II system with front and rear electronic lockers and removing the front lsd. How stupid is this??, now jeep will lose the spot in being the leader in 4x4 systems. If I was going to spend that amount of money on a limited or Overland 4x4, I would want the best and the greatest...not a dummied down version. I hope they add the front ELSD quick before this turns off potential buyers.

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

Is there any new info regarding future availability of front ELSD?

Nothing new... but the front ELSD is still listed on the Chrysler dealer online parts site.

These may all be stupid questions, but is it listed specifically for the 2011? Is it the same ELSD that was used in the first gen WK? Is it available for purchase, and is this something someone could have installed by a dealer, or perhaps install themselves? Can anything be deduced from the fact it's listed in the parts catalog/site?

Brief answers for now, but stay tuned to JG as the story behind this will more than likely be revealed... along with more WK2 technical and other information.

Milous,
just wondering what is different about the original WK ELSD and the new WK II ELSD?
