You're likely to get more answers to your questions in the JK section of the site, so check that out. For 2012, other than the engine change nothing is certain. There's conjecture and opinion, but that's it. As far as the current transmission, I don't think there are any major problems.

Gas mileage depends on a lot of factors. My 2011 Sport averages about 16.5 in the city and about 20.5-21 on the highway.

You're the only one that can tell you if you need a Rubicon. If you asked the entire board, 50% would probably say to spend the money now and get the Rubicon, and the other 50% would say to buy a Sport and use the extra money to upgrade as you see fit (so you don't pay for what you don't need, etc.). Personally, I belong to the latter group.

And Welcome!

blkrubi88 Welcome to the forum! I would say if you want a Rubicon and it's in your budget, then go for it. I have a Rubicon and it's my daily driver, it gets about 15 miles to the gallon on the highway.
