Great, I think you will get much more direct non inflamatory answers!!
I personally came from a 06 tj sport to a 11jku rubi, only had just over a month, so still learning it.
It's longer wheelbase
I get high centered more
Motor is more complicated
Four doors!! I have a young child and another on the way
Storage space in trunk
Drives like a "car" wheels like a jeep
Much quieter on highway
It's a rubi!
More "creature comforts"
Basically it really boils down to what your needs are in life right now. I would not have gotten a JKU if not for the kids, but now that I have one, I dint see me going back to a two door even when they are older. Like I said, it drives more like a cat, yet can wheel just as well as the TJ just have to be aware of the longer wheelbase.
People complain about it being "gutless" on the highway, but my TJ had 307 gears and while it got awesome MPGs, it too was gutless on the highway! Put that JK rubi in 4low and it feels the same as the tj. Majority of the people will never truly notice the difference between the I6 and V6.
I love my TJ, but absolutely love my JKU rubi too. the four doors is just more practical for me, better than an SUV and damn sure better than a minivan!!
