I'm thinkin about upgrading to this 07 JK. It's got : Teraflex Elite 10” Suspension Lift with all brackets, mounts, shocks, etc. (6” springs, 2.5” spacers) 37.7x14.50(actual with 16.50)R16 MAXXIS Creepy Crawler Tires (less the 1,000 miles on them) 16x10 Chrome Pro-Comp Wheels Full Size Spare (Matching wheel and tire) 8,500 Pound Waterproof Winch Swaybar Disconnects with Teraflex Quick disconnects 4 door Rock sliders Bushwacker Fender Flares Body Armor mid-width Front Bumper with Bull Bar Hella Black Magic 500 lights x 4 Cobra internal wired handheld CB Tow Point Shackles (front and rear) Body Armor Rear high clearance bumper with swing out Tire Carrier Receiver Hitch, Wiring Harness and Mount Brand New Front and Rear Drive Shaft (Double Cardan with Spicer U-Joints) Front Axle Yoke and Transfer Case Yoke Front River Raider heavy duty high fill Differential Cover Rear Currie Rock Jock Dana 60 with big bearing kit and Detroit New 5.13 Yukon Gears (Front and Rear) Royal Purple Fluids only Used for everything Fox Racing ATS Push Pull High steering stabilizer Extended Heavy Duty Brake Lines Custom Tint Banks Power Ram Air Cold Air Intake New U-Joints All Around Heavy Duty Tie Rod and Ends Heavy Duty Drag Link and Ends Teraflex Monster Forged Front Adjustable Trackbar Underbody Skid Protection Throughout Quadratec Cargo Liner and Passenger Floor Mats (rubber) Teraflex Mud Flaps and Brackets (Removable with pin) Teraflex Bump Stops Hard and Soft Top Rugged Ridge Grille Inserts Daystar Rocker Switch Panel Fully Wired For Lights and CB

All that and 109k miles. The cost is my first jeep which is my love...and my daily driver 06 tacoma but I want to do more than just cruise?

Any input would be nice, I just don't know anyone with the experience of switching from old to new? Any regrets if any?

so....what'd ya wind up doing? Did you swap for the JK ( I would have traded an '06 Tacoma and that CJ for the JK even with 109k and likely been beat to snot from the looks of those tires - no one but somebody that wheels the snot outta a JK would have sticky rock-centric awesomeness like those unless they wheeled hard; those are not the most street friendly shoes a JK can wear!) ? I just saw this and noticed you never came back with what occurred. You kept the Tacoma , didnt ya.....

i did keep everything as is. The YJ will stay in the family for the 3 growing girls to learn how to drive with. The new jeep with have to wait for next year. At least I have a picture of my dream jeep and more time to learn. My garage is just not big enough to work on right now. One limitation of living the military life.

it is good to keep Jeep with your truck. Make them happy + that's a lot of mileage on a JKU that had obviously been wheeled (if it was setup like you listed) so I am betting your still ahead in the reliability dept with the truck and family Jeep(whch is cool as heck;fix it up!)
