Tru-Lock on Sahara

Has anyone ordered the Tru Lock option ($650) on a Sahara? I have all the details worked out on an order but this is one I'm still debating.
The current options are the automatic and towing package which will yield me the 4.10 gears with Dana 44 rears. The lockers are appealing for the money and I just wondered if any has ordered this option or if anyone knows if this would hold up my order in some way?
You guys here are great and thanks in advance for your responses.

Its a brand new option for non-Rubi JKs. So nobody is going to have it just yet.

But for $650, go for it.

As far as I can tell, getting it factory installed is lots cheaper than adding it after the fact. So, if you think it is something you want, better to get it now.

Thanks guys, that's what I'm thinking, its much cheaper now than adding later. I'm just in hopes it doesnt hold up my order somehow! Yikes! The delivery stories are horrific around here right now!

It just depends on your situation. If you CAN wait to get what you want, you're better off doing it in the long run. If you NEED something sooner, well, maybe you have difference choices.

In my case, I waited as long as I could. After five months (July 26-Dec 28) and they still could not give me any kind of ETA at all, I just had to cancel the order and move on. I couldn't wait anymore, I was desperate for a replacement vehicle. I could have bought something else in the meantime, and then sold it when and if the Rubcion came along, but honestly, I was not sure that it would EVER get built. I didn't want to get until May or June or whenever they call it quits, only to be told something to the effect of, "well, sorry, we didn't get around to building your car. Try again next year".

So, good luck with your order! (:
