jsmithtx Welcome. The four door is very family friendly. We got the Ruby. Haven't seen very many places it can't go stock. I think the Sahara might ride a little better. But I would go with the Ruby for gearing if nothing else. Bigger wheels and tires and you would have to regear on the Sahara.

Purchacing a new jeep: an appeal to the guru's

Hello All,
I am in the market for a new vehicle. currently rocking a 96 fullsize bronco that i adore however the 9 miles a gallon and repairs are adding up so i think its time to upgrade. 35 now and for most of my adult life have had a blissfull combination of work truck and convertible. times are tough and having the bronco gave me the open air as well as the truck aspects in one ride. im not in a position to own two vehicles anymore so im currently looking at jeeps to cover both aspects and seeking advice. This is a huge step for me as ive never had a car payment or new vehicle. If I go down this road I want to do it once and do it right and be able to enjoy the vehicle for many years to come. looking forward to any and all advice that comes through.
I have a budget of approximately 20-25k to work with + trade in
I am looking for a 4 door(kids) dont know witch model would be best for me sport, sahara, rubi - i do offroad a bit, nothing too crazy though
I have a hard and soft top for current vehicle and like that combination for summer/winter: factory or aftermarket(the fastback style is appealing)
Jeeps not having a truck bed- some form of roof rack will be necessary for construction stuff and kayaks; what type to look for - do they impede soft top operation at all?
I enjoy the aspect of customization of jeeps how much should i set aside for upgrades, what are the most important, common and useful?
Honestly have about a billion more questions and hope the voices of experience can chime in - this is a big purchase for me and i am as exited as i am nervous. thanks in advance
