When the economy went to crap, I had to sell my YJ which was a third vehicle but decided to also sell my Ford F-150 and buy a JKU so I could still have a jeep. At first I hated the 4 door, but now, after 4 years and many mods later, i love it. I have two daughters, 8 and 12, and because we take the jeep on road trips, I yanked out the crappy rear bench seat and installed mastercraft baja seats with 3 point harnesses. they are pricy at $500 each, but it has been well worth the money. They are comfortable and recline all the way. I also installed a keyless entry system (I have an X which is very basic) which solved the lock/unlock issue. As far as towing, I tow one of the heaviest pop up campers you can buy, a Jayco Baja 12E which weighs 3400 lbs empty and has a front cargo area for an ATV. I am running 5:13 gears and trailer brakes which helps. I tow to the mountains so this year added a RIPP SC for extra power. JK's arent perfect, but you will never find a more versitile vehicle that can meet any need or want. 56,000 miles and only issue has been a $5.00 temp sensor.
