Ok, my last jeep was a 97 TJ Sport that I purchased new in 97. So I can't compare the a 2007 JK to a 2011 JK.
Here's what I got remember got rid of two vehicles to get my 2012 JKUR.

Standard Equipment:
Front Air Bags
Electronic Stability Control
4-wheel disc anti-lock brakes
Electronic roll mitigation
Hill start assist
4:1 Rock-trac part-time 4WD system
Tru-lok electronic locking frnt/rear differentials
Electronic front sway bar disconnect
Next gen Dana 44 heavy duty frnt/rear axles
4.10 rear axle ratio
Rock rails
Transfer case skid plate shield
Fuel tank skid plate
Speed control
Security alarm
22.5 gal fuel tank
Sentry key theft deterrent system
Tire pressure monitor with warning lamp
Interior
AC
Power widows
Power locks
Steering wheel mounted audio controls
Leather wrapped steering wheel
Remote keyless entry
Temperature and compass gauge
Tilt steering
Reclining front seats
Height adjustable driver’s seat
Rear 60/40 spit folding seat
115volt auxiliary power outlet
Rear compartment Covered Storage
Exterior
17” aluminum wheels painted satin carbon
Lt255/75R17 BSW off-road tires
Automatic headlamps
Power heated mirrors
Deep tint sunscreen windows
Two front tow hooks and one rear tow hook
Fog lamps
Matching spare wheel

OPTIONAL
Leather trimmed seats
Heated front seats
5 speed auto W5A580 transmission
Hill descent control
Auto temp control
4.10 rear Axle Ratio
Body color fender flares
Body color 3-piece hard top
Media Center 730N CD/DVD/MP3/HDD/NAV
368w 7-speaker infinity sound system with subwoofer
Remote start system

Pros:
Great ride for a Jeep it is 100 times quieter then my TJ I can talk hands free on my cell at 70 MPH.
Has more pickup then my 4.0 TJ manual.
Love the sound system, hands free cell blue tooth and the NAV system
Three piece hard top is nice
Heated seats will be nice in Alaska next year
OFF-ROAD first off-road trip
Aired down to 20 psi was able to go anywhere I wanted in sand except the really steep hill
Out climbed a TJ with 4” lift without my lockers
Plenty of power for climbing hills

Cons:
Lockers only work in 4L just like the 2011 not liking this at all my TJ had ARBs and they worked in 4H and 4L
Gas miles first tank 16 MPG second tank 16.8 MPG I drive both highway and city better than my 4.0 TJ 12 MPG but I was expecting 18 MPG.

Overall I love it much better than my 2007 Mustang GT...

Uh....what? I see no relevance to the original post, but thanks for the info on your rig anyway. Probably posted in wrong thread.
