TJ owner with JK ?'s

so, i rolled my rig, and i'm pretty sure usaa is going to total it. this leaves me with the option of either an 06 or 07 rubi. coming from a tj, i don't need any 06 advice. however:

how do you guys like the electronic in-cab disco?

has anyone discovered the locker 4hi bypass?

does anyone have the remote start? is it a PITA?

how does the drive-by-wire respond?

can i pull my delta h4's from my tj to swap them over?

so, i got my ENCS (military car dealer) quote:

'07Rescue Green rubi, bones aside from the smokers group and the deep tint windows for $27,896.50. $1602.35 less than MSRP it reads. does this sound about right?

my bro's fairly loaded X was 25k . . . so i'd say that's a pretty good deal!

I've got an opinion on that one:

I'd read in a Jeep brochure that the throttle response coming off-idle had been tamed - and it's true. It's more abrupt in my 4.0 TJ - kind of jerky and too fast a ratio. It's like Jeep dampened the JK's ratio and made the throttle cut in smoother.

And, the engine seems to recover from low-idle situations better. If I'm letting out the clutch and the revs get too low, I can feel the engine bringing up the RPMs smoothly without the idle hunting around.

I also think there's a difference with the cold-start program. Both my 4.0 TJ and Grand start and idle pretty rough when temps are below 20 degrees F. The JK's 3.8 starts and idles as though it's no different than any other warm start - smooth. I do notice the 3.8 takes a second or two longer cranking than my 4.0s to fire up - and I figure that's the computer program taking a look at the engine parameters before lighting up at the right time.
