Sell the '05 TJ, for a '12? Having 2nd thoughts.

Love my '05 Red TJ(Rubicon clone without the decals), and it only has 36,000. But after driving a '10 JK, and now the addition of the Pentastar Engine... I ordered a '12 Red 2dr Sahara. ETA is July 20. Should I take it, or.......Help!
I put this thread in the TJ section, to here what they have to say. You guys that have had sharp TJ's, any regrets? Any advice would be appreciated!

Can't fault you--I'd have one of each if I could. I love my JKU though. Any chance you can keep both?

In this vale of tears, learning how to become comfortable with giving up the good OLD toys in the hopes of acquiring even better NEW toys is a very important adaptive behavior.
