Replaced a totaled 2009 JKU with a 2016 JKU. Had the new one for 2 weeks. After 3 weeks it was lifted, new wheels and tires, new front axle, 4.88 gears, front and rear bumpers, winch, couple new skid plates. A few items carried over from the '09, most didn't. I really miss my Gobi stealth rack, wouldn't fit on the '16. With the new setup, the Jeep wouldn't fit in the garage with the Gobi anyway.
So good news is, better engine, 70k fewer miles, some changes for the better I never would have made to the '09. Bad news, went from 2 months payments left to a brand new loan......... no regrets, looking forward to the snow melting and the trails opening up.
