Hello fellow jeepers I bought a 2 door tj about a year ago, it's a 2003 rubicon with the 4.0 I6 (80,000 miles) Recently I've been thinking about upgrading for more space and for two more doors and a longer wheel base when crawling ect The jk would be a 2007-8 with about 110k miles What are you guys opinion's on the switch. Keep the 2003 or upgrade to the 2007-8. I don't know too much about the v6 pen star engine but I've herd good and bad responses to the crappy peppy ness in comparison to the I6

The 3.8 in that year is a dog compared to the 3.6. Even more so than the 3.6 is compared to the 4.0. Never had the 3.8 but I've driven a 3.6 and is not all that bad except alittle bit of electronic throttle induced lag.
