Getting ready to upgrade to a JK from my old TJ. So, with my budget at approx $23k, I find that I can buy either a '12 or '13 for roughly the same price. For instance, there is a private seller locally with a '12, fully loaded, 14k miles for $23,900. A local dealer will sell me a new '13 with just AC and Automatic Trans for $23100. So, money being equal, would y'all take a brand new car, or one with a few more options and a few more miles? Plus I've been reading on here about the dreaded 'engine tick'. Is it more likely on a 2012?
Or I suppose a 3rd choicce is to get a 2011 model with the older, slower but maybe more reliable engine, and save some $$
Sorry if this has been covered, I did a search and came up empty....
All advice greatly appreciated!
