Everyone seems to be voting for the wk2. So, ill have to stick up for the jk. I have a wrangler unlimited and my wife has a wk2. I like riding in the wk2 especially on longer trips but it would be boring for me if i drove it everyday. The biggest problem with the WK is that it only comes with an auto trans. Also the jk has a removable top and doors and feels more fun to drive.

On the other hand the wk2 is much more comfortable and better mpg. My eife had a jku that she traded for it and she loves the grand cherokee

So, either way you cant go wrong, test drive both and then decide

I would say two different beasts all together. GC is a lot more refined and comfortable to drive long distances but the wrangler is a blast with the top off and going around town. Wrangler loud, GC quiet. etc...etc

JKU & WK2 are day and night. We have a '12 JGC for the wife and love the smoothness and refinement of it, but i want to get a JKU for myself. It'll get worse mpg, rougher ride, more wind noise, etc but you cannot beat having the top down and doors off. Only 4-door vehicle you can do that in. If you have a family, kids will likely love the JKU.

If you have the space in your garage you can get both soft and hard top on the JKU and the hardtop which will make highway driving less noisy. Resale on JKU's is great so if you ever decide to sell your beating won't be anywhere as severe as in most other cars.

First thank you everyone for all the input.

So I finally had a chance to go and test drive both. I loved the Wrangler, don't get me wrong, beautiful truck but unfortunately not something I could see myself commuting to work in everyday. It was a fully loaded Sahara with the soft top which we test drove with it off, which was fine. For some reason, it felt cramped, even with the roof being gone. It drove decently, a little squirrely for my taste but not horrible. I felt like I was fighting with the road for something, it was insanely windy so maybe that could have had something to do with it.

Then I drove the GC and absolutely fell in love. It was a limited with the lux package which I would not be getting but it was all he had since someone had the regular limited out. It was awesome, I loved everything about it except for one thing. I was not a huge fan of the steering, It was very very loose. Almost felt like I could use one finger and turn the wheel, I wish it was a bit heavier. All in all it was great, I just learned that they removed the dual exhausts for the 2015 model and for some reason thats really bothering me so I will most likely be picking up a 14 Limited with the upgraded wheels later on this year!

I could not be more excited.
