    So I’m looking to do a new build.
    Looking at a near cherry 2003 Rubi manual. Did they come with the electronic sway bar disconnect? I done see a switch indicating so or is it not located in the center cluster?

    also found a beautiful red 2005 with 72k automatic?

    do the automatics have better resale then the manuals?

    I don't think the electronic sway bar disconnect came until the JK Wrangler.
    I want to say that a 6 speed Rubicon is more sought after, but I could be wrong. I would prefer a manual trans personally.

    If the plan is for resale AT tends to be an easier sale with many newer Jeepers. I prefer MT whenever possible and some diehard Jeepers actually prefer to choose their gears.

    paid cash for it.
    Yeah, auto vs man is an age old debate. Probably more customers for the auto in terms of resale but mans are easier to service and last longer.
