Newb looking to go from 08 STi to a 2012/13 JKU

Hello everyone,
I'm new to the forum here. I currently drive a 2008 5-dr hatch Subaru WRX Sti. I'm looking for a change and have my eyes on a 2012 JKU Altitude. I have young kids, so having some extra room, comfort, option to take the top off, and doing some light offroading are my thoughts.

I realize this a Jeep forum, but wondering if anyone has experience with making this switch and has some words of advice. Thanks in advance.

I went from a BMW coupe to a Wrangler. I get much more satisfaction driving over things than driving around them =)

I heard a while back they were talking about some time in summer of 2012 the sti would get a tweaked suspension and a little more power but the body would be the same?
