I've been toying with the idea of selling my semi built 66 Bronco, tow rig, and trailer; for the new Rubicon. I thought I would ask if anyone out there has done something similar. I have alot of history with my Bronco but have less of a desire to work on the truck. I spend my vacations in Moab and sometimes the Hammers. I haven't been able to drop my interest in the new JK. I didn't even bat an eye when the TJ's came out.
The heavy factor is the lifetime warranty. Has anyone had any issues with Trail related breakage? The dealer said I can lift to 3" without voiding the warranty. Can I cram 35" Krawlers under a JK with a 3" lift?
In the early days I would drive my Bronco too and from events. How does the JK hold up on long drives with 35" tires. I got good at changing wheel bearings on the side of the road till I bought a Currie upgrade for my Bronco.
Are there any factors I'm not considering. Before the Bronco I was CJ's all the way. I've been in the Bronco for 14years but not partial to BRAND, just capabilities. I can only come up with advantages of owning a new JK. Any old school out there that kept both and have any input?
If I sell everything associated with my Bronco I can take a big chunk out of the cost of the JK. I'm pretty confident in what I'm about ready to do; I'm just looking for some input.
66 Bronco, 35's, Currie front and rear w/detroits. NP435, PTO winch.

Reason: Add Bronco info for comparison.
