2008 Sahara or 12 Sport

I am looking at a Jeep Wrangler as a fun vehicle. This being said I am looking in mid teens price wise. 2 I found that seem like good candidates, both manuals. 2008 Sahara hardtop with 76k miles for $14k pretty stock. The other is a 12 Sport 87k miles for $15,750 power locks, windows, Sat radio, it also has upgraded wheels and tires.
I like the 12 due to the interior, the 3.6 and it being 4 years newer. I am a car guy but I like to grab info from Wrangler pros who know these trucks Question: is the 3.6 that better or an engine and an I making the right choice of the 12 for the reasons stated above.
Thanks for the help.

3.6 L > 3.8 L

Looks like it's actually a Sport S

What are the gear ratio's of each? 3.73>3.21

I would go with the 12 over the 08. The Sahara is slightly more "refined" with it's interior and color matched fenders but the Sport S has a lot of that also.

3.6 is 85 more horsepower and 1 better mpg.

If the sport is an "S" with power windows, you're not missing much not getting a sahara. Running gear is the same, it's just a trim package.

If you plan to lift, big tires, and actually off-road, think about a Rubicon.

Let me think that question over...

.000831 seconds later I think the '12 is a better choice.
