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 3.6 pentastar engine isn't in the range of jeeps your considering. You are looking at 3.8 from '07-'11

even though I am GENERALLY against a Rubi......(IMO most people don't need one, and the people that truly need one, need MORE than a RUBI)........but hey your Jeep/ your choice.......okay if ya still are following this train of thought.... I like my JKs...both of them....built after '11....with the Pentastar. IMO keep your RUBI until you can switch for a Pentastar/ '12 or newer....and yeah I had a TJ for 11years I can compare them.....GOOD LUCK!!!

Oh yes you are right. My bad! My dad had the 3.8 and the power just isn't there. The pentastar is amazing compared to the other.
