99.9% will tell you the 4.0. It is an incredibly reliable engine that will last forever. The only reason I bought my 2011 was because getting a low mileage 2006 would have only cost me about 3k less because Jeeps hold their resale value. I live in a military town so all the dealers figure if I don't buy it for that price someone else will. If you can find an 06 for a price you are happy with do it.

Thanks Mr. E...this is what I am hearing from just about everyone that the 4.0l is the one to go with...your right about holding their values...06 with less than 30m miles are going for around $19M..thanks again

Yep, it just depends on which body/interior you prefer, and how deep your pockets are...

X2. For mom it's a jku. For me the creature comforts are less important. So it depends on what you want, I love my 4.0 but the 2011 jku I drove was pretty good on pedal response.
Do I look like a cat to you boy? Am I jumpin' around all nimbly bimbly from tree to tree? Am I drinking milk from a saucer? DO YOU SEE ME EATING MICE?
