Hey, I'm new to the Jeep community and looking to purchase my first Wrangler. I have so many questions and am very excited to be in the purchasing phase. I am finding STEALS on 2010-11 models as it seems people are going crazy for the new 2012+ 3.6 VVT motors. Either way, there seems to be a debate/battle of worth of the "mini-van" motors and I wondered if it was worth spending a little more to get the newer motor or taking advantage of the deals on the 2010/11 models? I intend to use this as a daily driver and have fun "wheel'n it" once in awhile. I do plan to trash the stock wheels/tires and lift it maybe 3" or so. This will be my new toy/money pit.
Any input would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks!
Anyone know of any good deals out there? within 100 miles of Aurora, IL. would be preferred.
