thinking of upgrading to a lower model

I have a 2003 rubicon (details in my signature).

I'm thinking about getting a new 12 sport S unlimited. Basically, i'd lose the rubicon features but I honestly don't use them, and I doubt I'd use them in an unlimited. I basically need to sell my Jeep to pay off debt, and then would trade my car in on the new unlimited. I'd like the unlimited because of the space and extra doors if it's going to be my only vehicle, but I cannot afford a rubicon or sahara unlimited unless i can figure out an employee discount plan with a friend or family member.

Questions:
Does anyone know the real world mpg on the manual for the 12?

Is the upgraded radio (w/sub) worth the $385? I probably will not do aftermarket.

Do you think it would be cheaper to get the dual top package or just get the hard top and buy an aftermarket full soft top?

Should I get the 3.73 axle upgrade and the trak-lok LSD? Are they worth it?

Thanks everyone.
