If you could only keep one. Which one?
2006 LJ, 5.7 hemi, Dana 60s, 4.88 air lockers on 37s. Or, 2011 JK, 6.4 hemi, Rubicon Recon axles, 4.88 e-lockers on 37s.
Two seat or four seat isn't a deciding factor.

Do amenities have a say in it? If not I think I would go with the 06.
For me the truck would serve me better for hauling dog food 馃槃.

The 06 LJ has lots of sentimental value, but it would still stay in the family. As in going to my son. Other consideration is that wife's and my travel/wheeling days are behind us. Unfortunately, as my resistance to aging and being able to care for her health issues (multiple sclerosis and new diagnosis of cancer) is becoming increasingly challenging. Not griping! She's a gift.
Maybe get something a little lower to the ground, so it would not be as hard on ya. Sorry to hear about the cancer diagnosis.

We have two other daily drivers so it would just be a fun ride around town/mall crawler. The truck is a custom built JK8. Predecessor to the Gladiator. The JK8 is a better road vehicle. The LJ is setup to crawl. Leaning to keep the JK8 and let my son continue the LJ legacy. He and I did an Easter jeep safari a few years ago. Maybe he and his son would someday take the same trip.
Thanks for the kind words regarding my wife. Treatment plan being developed.
I forgot about your regular car. I would do what you said, let your son have the Jeep, and keep the truck, it's nice in red, and you can haul 300 pounds of dog food easily, just open the tail gate, and throw it in.
Although, keeping it in the Jeep for storage is easier with the cover.

She had the wheel. Spotter indicated for her to turn hard right at the top, but I knew she couldn't do that so told her just to continue straight. Nice tall flexible birch tree put to use. :D Camera was okay and the camera guy presented her his little tripod. 2:00 to 2:04 is a different view of the obstacle.
Thanks for the support.
I've watched the video a couple of times, even went to the timestamps you posted, and I have not seen your Jeep. I'll look again.
Yep, all I am seeing is a red and yellow Jeep.
Went back again, and watched from the beginning, it's at time stamp 1:00 to 1:05
LOL, I watched this when you posted the video a while back. I never even gave a thought to the camera. It looks like it was supposed to be the shot.
