Advice please

Hey guys kinda new here , I have an 04 rubicon TJ , gen right hi finders rockers and corners , Tera flex four link rear long arm front 4 inch kit , banks header and edge trail jammer kit , smity built bumpers front and rear. And other small stuff here and there

I'm looking for options I have a 350 engine that's new and thinking about swapping it in with a propane kit.
And selling the 4.0 in the jeep to help pay for it

Or seeing what trade in would be for the new jk diesel that's suppose to come out 2015???

What would y'all do keep a soon to be classic body style or get a new build ?

I would keep the classic TJ personally. A friend of mine just removed the propane kit off his 350 (dedicated trail jeep only) due to having a hard time getting it refilled when he needed, he just wanted something more convenient. He has 3 tanks and says that each tank would last 4-10 hours of wheeling depending on the temperature and wheeling style.

It is a 350 in a stretched cj5 that doesnt see anything but trials and I doubt it has a gauge that works, so no idea. But I doubt it goes more than 4 miles a tank, since it is in lo constantly.
