trading my lj for jku ?s

I am thinking of trading my 04 lj for a 07-09 jku. I am trying to weigh the pluses and minuses. I really want the 4 doors. Getting car seats in the back of an lj is a pain in the ass. I heard the jk get a little better fuel mileage. I am at 13 mpg right now. I haven't driven a jk yet but I might be one of the few that like the rough ride of a jeep. Some of the things I don't like about the jk are the fancy interior. It is to nice for a jeep. I don't want power locks or windows. And I am not a fan of the big bumpers on the factory jk. The bumper thing can be changed. I was basically wondering if there were previous tj owners that bought a jk and what do you like better and what do you dislike.

You can get the JK without the fancy interior, you know. I mean, I'm not talking skeleton, but...

11 the Jk became fancy (er)

Stick with 07-10 and you will be fine.

I drove a Tj for 10 yrs, the Jk is a lot better on road IMO.

Power may be stock in the Jku because of the rear doors ( not sure about that ) something to consider if not the case.
