New JKU Help
What do I need to know when shopping for a new (or lightly used) JKU? I have an '89 YJ now, and don't know much about JK's except that I want one and it's time to upgrade.
So... any models, features, or options that I should insist on? Or anything that I should avoid?
Long term plan is getting it off road capable. Wife will drive it as pavement princess for a few years before I take it over and start customizing for off road.
I doubt that the Ruby is gonna be in the budget with the already geared 4.10, but does it make sense to pay the extra now for a Ruby, or just get a Sport or Sahara... and then upgrade it later?
Any help is appreciated. Never really looked into JK's because I didn't want to tempt myself before. But now I'm ready and I don't want to regret getting a certain model if I can avoid it.
