No front ELSD for QD II?
 
Rumor has it that the front ELSD has been dropped from QD II for the 2011 GJC, although it is advertized to have it at Jeep.com.

Is there any truth to this rumor?

Does the fact I have a limited 4x4 with QDII with no front ELSD on it count for proof or do you want me to go get a written note from Obama? :D

I don't mean to be difficult, but how you know it's not in there? Just because it's not explicitly mentioned in the build sheet? Because I don't think QDII can deliver full torque to a single front wheel, as advertised, without an ELSD or electric locker. :)

Well my build sheet has ELSD on the back but nothing on the front. Its kinda like since my car doesn't say its not a SRT does that mean it may be? I dont know but I dont think you will find anywhere saying that it does not have ELSD. Milous may be able to answer that questions for you as hes got the scoop on whats happening. Try sending him a message. Good luck.

I'm over it. It was too easy though, I had to take advantage. Now it's your turn to get over it. :D

Quoting Jeep.com is not a good thing! They don't come close to keeping the specs current on their site, and usually have several discrepancies within the build section. Brochures are printed long in advance, so they are not accurate either...and possibly, for the same reason, the Owner's Manual! We know for a fact that the front was omitted, and it now just uses the braking application as the limiting device. What we are presently investigating, is what is the axle ratio for the various engines, with or without any Off Road package. The omission of the front LSD is one question I want to ask the engineers during the scheduled chat.
