Having said that, how much of a haircut can one expect when trading in a jeep with only 6 months of ownership? I've never owned a car with payments and this one does have them...
If the 2wds sell well in your area, it wouldn't hurt to ask your local dealers what it would take to put you into a 4wd model if you go that route. At the very least it would give you [besides a financial heart attack] an idea of budgetary alternatives.
As for aftermarket LSD, check the local 4wheel/offroad specialists in the area to see if there are any good fits for yours. I probably wouldn't waste money on the fancy electric lockers, but there may be substitute rear ends that would help a bit. Watch out for aggressive LSDs on a 2wd, if they come on too strong you could end up going straight ahead when you are trying to turn on slippery surface.
Might try this guy Google as well to see whats out there.
