2011 Wrangler 2 Door Call of Duty vs. 2012 Base Rubicon
Need to make a decision this weekend. My dealer is offering me a 2011 Wrangler Call of Duty (New) for the same price as a base 2012 Rubicon. What should i do?
I personally find the call of duty thing a but tacky....but id go with the 2012 just because its newer, different more powerful engine, the rubicon looks good the COD like i said tacky, the 2012 will have better resale in the longrun too dono how long your plannin to keep it

2012 all the way. The new engine is miles ahead of the old one.

And for the record, I'm probably judging you for your bad grammar or spelling.

I would wheel the 2012 Rubicon - you can give it your own personality over time plus the engine is IMHO night/day different - I was in similar situation looking at some used 2010s and 2011s (they sure hold their value) - ended up in the 2012 with only the factory "stuff" but have been very happy. Sometimes I think I should have done the JKU....

An advantage of getting the 2011 is that he can transfer my rugged ridge cold air intake, throttle body spacer and mbrp muffler i just added 3 months ago on my 2007 sahara. I could probably squeeeze him an extra 1000$ trade in for me sahara. He offered to install those for free on the 2011.
