I agree with the multipurpose thing. You've just got more room to haul all your gear on the trail. Maybe you don't need that much room, it's up to you.
When you say a "Wrangler" with a 4.0 that needs clarification. You couldn't pay me to drive a stock YJ, total Barbie Jeeps *in stock form* and some of the weakest drivetrain components around.
Now if you could trade the Bronco for a TJ that might be a *sound financial deal,* but you still couldn't pay me to drive a TJ 'cause everyone and his brother along with every magazine out there is building them.
That means TONS of aftermarket support, and if you're into that, go for it! I prefer to build my stuff and search the junkyards than pay for bolt-on everything.... it's just more fun to make stock stuff work in non-stock applications.
The Jeep does get the nod for a solid front axle, even if it is a POS Dana 30.
Totally Twisted and Broke makes me a saaaad Panda
