Maybe so. I woudn't trade to get something that isn't proven just yet and only makes 85 more horsepower above 4k 10 to 15 more before that not enough to make a huge difference unless in the hills or pulling something. But, crusin at 70 mph they both will do the same thing. No need to get a car note unless you don't own a JKU yet but, a paid for one is just silly to trade up for the same thing as far as fit and function go.

Your right if it isn't paid for but, thats just paying more in the long run. To me you buy a vehicle and drive it till the wheels fall off just make sure its something you like. To me its so silly to get rid of a vehicle well cared for with less than 100k. You aren't getting your moneys worth why even take care of it? You won't get much more for it anyway. Thats just me though. I know alot of folks that have a fit before it even hits 100k they think things will start breaking and cost to much. Trick is you take care of it the best you can and if and when you do have to spend money you aren't putting a transmission,engine any major part on a thousand dollar vehicle. Let it make you money.
