Swapping my 06 LJ Rubi build

Just when I get my 06 LJ Rubicon built up the way I want it, we get pregnant with twins. I love this thing but 4 kids in an LJ isn't going to work. How good are the new 2013 JK 4door Rubicons? I thought Jeep was doing a diesel sometime soon? I'm going to hate myself when I sell this.

Keep it, I regret selling mine.

I love the 2013 4 door I bought, but its no lj.

You can't all go wheeling in a new 4 door, so why sell the lj. Chances are not everyone is going to want to go on every wheeling trip.

Food for thought

an lj is almost as big as a jk 4dr.
if you dont fit in one, you wont fit in the other.
the new pentastar engine would be nice though.

Seems like the only advantage while the kids are small would be easier access with the extra doors. Space wise either would be similar for little kiddo bet. Wouldn't want to swap my LJ for a jk. Friend of mine just did the opposite. Traded a jku for a LJ.
