New Jk or a used TJ

I want a rubicon needless to say if i go new or used. What would be a better ride overall? Pros and cons of each? Im not to big of a off road guy, like you guys are. I do like mud though and snow.

Just hearsay, but I heard the new JK's ride real nice, but are a little new for me, I am going to wait a couple of years to get one. The price is a big consideration, if you can afford a brand new Rubi, I think I would have to get one...I love my TJ, just saying though...

If you are looking for ride in a Jeep and you have the money go for the JK.

If you are looking for ride quality look at the 4 door JK or another DC product. TJs are not the best riding of the bunch, but I wouldn't trade mine for less than a cool million.

I drove a JK but was hesitant to buy because they're still in their first year of production. They drive nicer and have a good bit more elbow room, but having previously owned a TJ, I was kind of stuck on the old tried and true inline six. There are still some new TJs to be found, you just have to search for them. I searched local dealers from and found several new 06 Wranglers still on the lots. I got a heck of a deal on one and wouldn't trade it for the world.

If you're not going to go offroad, why go with the Rubi? Seems like a waste of money either way you look at it.
