Order 2012JKUR or wait for a 2013JKUR

I have had a 2010 jkus for 6 months and realize I want a stock rubicon with the options I want. I am just as addicted as most people here and I know I will own a jeep for the next 10 years. I love my sport, but there is something missing.

The 2012 is the first year for the new motor, so do I wait for the kinks to get taken care of?

I ordered my 12 in December and took delivery in Jan. I dont think that much/ if anything will change with the 13. They have been putting the pentastar motor in other vehicles for 2 years now. Besides the thread about the bad heads on some pentastars, seems to be going smoothly. I love mine. Do what you want but I say if you get into the routine of waiting for the next year, you'll always be waiting. Especially with no major updates planned.

If you wait for the '13, '12s will be cheaper.

The heads aren't a deal breaker, but they do give me pause.

I hear the '13's are supposed to come with "Magic Finger" front seats and Shiatsu foot massagers for rear passengers, as well as a FLIR system that'll help you see the deer you're about to peg, since the stock headlights suck so bad.

For only like $9K more than the '12.

I'd wait.
