Nice looking ride. May I ask, why did you go from a 2009 to a 2011? What was the deciding factor that made you take the plunge on a 2011?

Yeah, my 09 was a 2 door. prior to my Wangler I've always had SUVs as a daily driver. My wife has the mini van.. I figured I could save myself like $10k and get the 2 door Jeep for ME to run back and forth to work and be fine. Well, with dropping the kids off at school and shuttling them to and from their various evening and w/e activities, I really missed the 4 doors.
also, missed the cargo space. ( kinda a PITA to pack anything larger than a few bags of groceries in the back of the JK, with the soft top on )

So I bit the bullet, ate my few $k loss on the trade, and went for the new JKU. Hope to keep this more than a year and a month :)

BTW, the 4 door 2011 has a much smoother ride as a daily driver as compared with my 09 2 door, IMHO. both are Standards.. and the Sahara has some upgrades too which are nice to have.

Welcome to the Addiction! Why does the top not match?
Matching color hard tops are an OPTION on these Saharas. Mine didn't have it. I prefer the BLACK top anyway. I like the contrast. I went to 3 dealers in my hunt for the best deal.. and didn't see any matching top Saharas at any of these lots. dunno why. I would have liked to see one in person to compare.
