Is the difference between the JL and JK comparable to the difference between the JK and the TJ?
How many miles were on your TJ or LJ when you bought it.
I am really thinking about selling my JK and buying a TJ or LJ. I really have taken a liking to them. I found an 02 TJ, 4.0, 5-speed, soft top, dog hair, Warn winch, Warn bumpers, and about 136,000 on it. They are "asking" $8900. I drives very nice, no death wobble, new 33's and not sure on lift. Thoughts, suggestions, tips or talk me out of it would greatly be appreciated. I sent a pic to the wife and she called it a "wee jeep"! LOL!

TJ's are really cool but I don't think I'd want one as my DD. It'd be a badass second or third vehicle to have and take on adventures, but man, JK's are just so capable. And like Eddie mentioned, the jump from the JK to the JL is crazy in the amount of improvements made from platform to platform.
One thing working in your favor Pete if you do make the jump to the TJ: Depending on how long you keep it, you'll probably be able to get close to the same amount out of it for what you paid.
PS: it'd be a great Jeep to take on a road trip to PA!
I love my 2005 LJ, I do find it more fun to drive at times. With that said, I own several Jeeps, WILLYS, CJ, YJ, LJ and JK's and my LJ I think is the most fun to drive to the Beach or Around town (it is completely stock), but off-roading my JK is the go to vehicle.
