i've got a 2007 Sahara, love at first sight....the stealer jacked it up 2 inches, and put on the larger tires. Its a six speed with 3.21 gears in it. Having had the TJ, i was disappointed with the low end torque and have constantly thought about changing the gears out. However, lately, with the incentives, I've considered trading for a 2009 Rubicon with 4 speed auto. My problem with most of the Sahara's is the low end speed and torque coming out of the box. You have to rev the engine and slip the clutch to keep it at a good low speed if in 2wd especially if you are off road on a trail. That said, when you put it in low, low, it works pretty good. I got a chance to run it this past hunting season in upstate n.y. in about 6 inches of snow up some haul/skid roads in some sizable terrain. I wasn't disappointed.
Think I'll go test drive one today....i did a build your own and it came out to 29000. I think you'll be satisfied either way....but if you can, get the 4.10's vs one with 3.21's
