Bought the Sahara without the non slip rear option last weekend and am loving it so far. Not a serious off roader so probably won't ever know the difference. Hope this little trivia tidbit helps those inquiring minds.
should take it to Bridgeport and let it show you what it can do. There are people going out there about every weekend. Check out either lone Star Jeep Club or Texas JK. I'm on both under the same name.

Re: are all Wrangler rear ends limited slip?

The Sahara either has a opened, trac-lock, or limited slip rear diff. It has nothing to do with shifting it into 4 wheel drive.
The Rubicon has both front and rear electric lockers. You must shift into 4 wheel low to activate the lockers. They don't automatically go into lock when you shift into 4 wheel low, but rather there is a button that you push to activate the rear first, push it again and it activates the front, now both are locked.
This is only available on the Rubicon.

Track lock is a limited slip, clutch style rear diff.
"no spin" is what jeep calls it.
Available in all models except rubicon.

Also, the 4wd lever MECHANICLY locks the diffs together. The only electronics are downhill descent.

Salesman need hit with large heavy objects for the poor info they give out.
