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.

To be honest, I've always liked the 2011 CoD edition. If the price was right, I'd really consider it.

Oops, just re-read the OP. Yeah, I'd go for the 2012

Agreed. Like if the 2011 CoD comes with the 2012 motor...

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

YEAH, the engine would make or break it for me. Tho when i was working out the paperwork at the dealer on my 2012, he showed me the "menu" of options for the COD... man, you can load that bad boy up with like $8k in gear. BUT, considering that I've owned the 09 with the old motor, and now the new 2012 it is night and day.

I am afraid of the first model year issues. The old 3.8 has been around a long time and is pretty stable no?

Consider trade in value of the cod version. There is a reason it is still on the lot in 2012 becuase it is a niche market. When and if you decide to trade it in a dealer may take that into consideration. Same thing with "cool" but ugly colored vehicles. Once that trend dies out it is hard to unload

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.
