I have decided to buy a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited (4 dour model) I am trying to decide between the Sahara and the Rubicon. There is about a $3K difference but that is not the concern. My wife and I have toured the country on a Honda Valkyrie motorcycle. There were many times that we wanted to explore areas off road and couldn't because of the bike. We also want to drive to Alaska in a Jeep. The Rubicon has a lot of off road equipment we probably will never use but, I would hate to have to buy that same equipment after the fact. We will go off road, but I cannot see us ever climbing rocks, etc. So, I am guessing that the Sahara is probably good enough. Also, we are just selling a POS Ford F350 dually that has cost me almost $14K in repairs (it is a 2006 6.0L) and it is still within the extended 200K engine warranty. (My 30 year relationship with Ford is over). Having that experience, we are worried about Jeep relability. Any thoughts or suggestions? The biggest attraction for the Jeep besides the legend is that we can completely remove the tops.
