    Probably so, makes the JK even a better bang for the buck to me. But I’d also get a manual, which would negate the benefit of the JL’s 8 speed transmission.

    Personally I'd do the Recon. If I hadn't gotten a Willys last year, I'd be all over a low mileage Recon this year.

    Couldnt wait though. Lol

    Well, I as able to snag it for $34K. 12K miles, and everything is in great shape. I'm definitely in the honeymoon phase though, Haha! I never thought I would get a JK, but, I really do enjoy it. This is the first CJ/Wrangler that myself or my dad had that's an auto, and it almost like cheating, lol! I do think the 8 speed would be nice, but honestly 5 speed is nice as well. Compared to my 94 YJ Sahara I DD for 10 years, this thing is a Bentley.

    P.S. Sorry about the crappy first pic.

    Nice buy. JL's are now the middle child that get no attention since the JT came out.

    Good buy!
    Oddly enough, I find my JKU to have a better seating position and to be more comfortable driving longer distances than my JLU. The two seating positions/ergonomics are night and day. I can stretch my legs out a little better in my JKU.
    The JLU feels a little smaller. It's not cramped at all, just more snug.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
