No I don't plan to tow at all I have an old beater truck that's why I was thinking why do I have all of these vehicles two trucks if you call a ridgeline a truck and trying to restore a yj because I had a rusted frame and now i have the frame part done and the tub is on my trailer did all the sheet metal but its been 2 years and I'm not done yet and I have a while to go because trying to save money and pay car payment isn't always easy so I figure get the 4door and fix that up if I'm gonna make payments and work on something , I really only want to run 33 inch tires maybe 35 later and I barely do any highway driving I'm lucky if I drive the highway once a month so that's why I was considering one with a 3.8 put for not much more I can get a new one and start fresh with warranty should of bought the dang jeep to begin with but the wife didn't think it was safe for our son lol we won't go there but now she sees how much its costing to build one I think she just fed up to with all this stuff laying around
I will say I test drove an 07 and 13 the seats in the 13 are more plush feeling it is a little more refined and I actually do like the power windows and keyless over non power but I really want something that isn't going to be headache
I bought a 13 JKU 2 weeks ago today and traded in my 2012 crew cab silverado and I am 100% happy I did. I got the 3.73 gears because I do tow some with it and I just got back from a 400+ mile trip and got 21.4mpg hand calculated. I have put right at 2000 miles on it in 2 weeks and have zero complaints. I have several buddies with 3.8's and hear them complain about how gutless their rigs are and I can tell you that there is nothing gutless about this 3.6 and 3.73's.

I agree the 3.6 has more pick up I want the 3.73 too I was test driving it went to make a turn hit the gas and it started spinning wheels lol . You always here complaints so its good to hear people going from vehicles I used to driving daily to a jeep I will have to do the soft top because of payments but I think it will be ok I like that it flips back in the front
