Having owned both, regardless of which one you currently own, you will be very happy you made the change and still miss the old one.

I cheated a bit on this. I only had the trailer hitch, front bumper, and winch. I told the dealership that I would only make the deal if the switched everything over....they did. Even hooked up the electrical for the winch.

Doesn't hurt to ask....

And I was doing the same thing, moving from a JK to a JKU.

Congradulations, you won't regret it for a second.

If you count tax credit, I got nearly 26,900 for my trade. 2012 JK that I had for 16 months and with 5k miles and a misfire in cyl 2.

I let go my bumpers, 33in rims/tires combo, side steps, fuel cover, mopar spot lights, and mopar tail guards in the deal.

The new owner of that JK has a diamond and I am very happy with my new JKU. Wish I could have kept the wheels / tires. I was getting great price on my trade with those on.

If I get 20k for my trade I'll be happy. It's a jk with only a/c as an option. I was looking at a jkus but then I saw a freedom edition/oscar mike. I like the look of it but don't think I'll get the same deal. We will have to see.

I had the 23s package and deep tint. 20k would be a reasonable deal on a base JK for a dealer. Is there a carmax near you?
