Wrangler in the garage... to keep or not to keep?

Took my WK2 to the dealer, came home with the following Wrangler and told them I'd decide by morning if I wanted to buy it.

2012 Wrangler Unlimited Sport S (3.6L 4x4)
(Sport S package has everything important Sahara does (Dana 30 front, limited slip, etc.)
3.73 gears, power everything, Uconnect, airbags, tow hithc, etc.

I can't decide if I like it more than my GC or not.
Love the open top ability, but the seats and ride aren't nearly as cushy as the GC.
I commute 12 miles to work, take road trip vacations twice a year, have 2 huskies, and go out on the farm a couple times a year.

Thoughts to help me decide?

Re: Wrangler in the garage... to keep or not to keep?

dont have the WK2 but same thing happened to me when i walked in to the dealer about 2 months ago..
came out with this:

personally i say go for it, but as Scott said it really depends on what you want out of the truck, the GC is more than capable in all your requirments and is more comfortable.. the wrangler has a big fun factor and thats its major advantage IMO. I love commuting in the wrangler, you will get used to the seats (i know i did), plus loads and loads of fun to be had with this truck.. and as the miles pass by i find that I love it way more than my old WK. The unlimited is also more versatile when wanting to add luggage, passengers or in your case the huskies .

good luck on whatever you decide

Re: Wrangler in the garage... to keep or not to keep?

I guess I'm lucky I have one of each, Wife=WK2, Me+Wrangler JK Sport.
At only 12 mi to work and the longer wheel base ride should be good.
GET THE WRANGLER, You'll love it
