Rear Differential question on Sahara and X

Jeep's website shows the option of the "Trac-LokŪ Limited Slip Rear Differential" for the Sahara and X models.

When ordering at the dealer and on Edmunds.com, the only Differential option is the "DSA Anti-Spin Rear Differential".

Are these the same thing?

Yes. It is a geared LSD differential as opposed to the electronic traction control which it also has.

yes same thing. My build sheet for my TJ shows the DSA Anti-spin diff, and i have the Trac-loc on my window sticker

My understanding though that the LSD is now electronic, not mechanical, i think?

The Electronic Stability Program (ESP) is standard on all models. The Trac Loc mechanical rear Limited Slip Differential (LSD) is an available option on the X and Sahara in addition to the ESP. The LSD is not available on the Rubicon, which comes standard with Electronic Locking Differentials front and rear in addition to the ESP.
