$31k for a 2011 w. 10k on the clock huh? Picked up my '11 Unlimited Rubicon with leather for $34k new. Guess that speaks volumes about resale value, huh?
That's awesome!

Re: Help!! With Buying 08-13 JK Unlimited four door (NYC)

Thanks you guys, with all the information you guys gave me. The 2012-up with the new motor are probably the best bet with the 3.73 rear gear to tow once or twice a year 2,800lbs.

Right now, I just haven't found any good prices on any 2012, so I might just wait until the 2014 are release and maybe I have a few more opinions to choose from.

Re: Help!! With Buying 08-13 JK Unlimited four door (NYC)

I have had a 2007 Sahara Unlimited with the towing package and thus the 3.73 rearend. It routinely averaged 16.5 and on the highway would get 19-20 mpg in 2 lane and about 18.0 on interstates. I now have a 2013 Rubicon and am getting about 18.0 on 2 lane highways and 17.00 on Intertstates. and it likewise has the 3.73 rearend. Now I assume the sahara and sport without towing will have the 3.21 rearend and get better mileage. When towing you will get about 10-11 mpg.

Yeah....towing with the 3.21s can probably be done...but it won't be enjoyable. For towing the 3.73s are probably the best bet unless you get a Rubicon with 4.10's. But as you said, the fuel economy will suffer 1-2 mpg.
