Bad Deal?

A month ago I purchased a 2013 jkus, with dual tops, premium sunrider, max toe, 3.73, lsd, connectivity and alpine, auto.. i roughly owe 31,800.. in that month i put on AEV 2.5xt, geo correction brackets, 315/70/17 MTR/K, AEV pintler, Teraflex tire carrier.
I am thinking of trading for a 2013 new JKUR with connectivity, leather, heated seats, auto , max toe, 4:10, premium sunrider soft top. It would be a new build so i would drive my current vehicle for 6 weeks and at time of trade in it would have 4000 miles. Price is 34,100
I can trade in stock, but keep the hard top and get 28,000 or trade in as it sits but keep the hard top and they will give me 31,000- 31,500.
I can buy eveything again at the prices I paid. I saves money on the tires and install.
Is this stupid.
We went to Uwharrie and had a blast, and i want to off road more.
Also I would be out the door for everything @ 35,000 for trade in and Rubicon purchase, plus I would still have my hardtop.

Depends if you can take the financial hit and if it's worth it. If that's really what you want to do and you'll be happy with it, do it. Sounds like you should have bought the Rubi in the first place... but things don't always work that way.

how much did you put down on your initial purchase?

even if you put 0 down still taking a heck of a hit for a month old vehicle.

Assuming you aren't living paycheck to paycheck, just go for it. It's just money. Why work hard if you can't spend the money?

Man, it's your hard earned dollar and you only live once so GO FOR IT!!!!!!!!!!!
Now if you are a Cat with nine (9) lives, then I would think twice about it, or maybe nine times about it.
WHAT'S IMPORTANT IS THAT YOU ENJOY YOUR RIDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
