I'd throw a party if Jeep said they would buy mine back and I'd never consider another FCA vehicle again.
You sound just like me with my 2019 Toyota Tacoma TRD Off-Road. Hated that thing; couldn’t wait to dump it.

Life’s too short.

I'd get the same 2-door Rubicon 2.0T and options. I would probably change up the color to Sting Gray and maybe add the painted hardtop. I'd also consider Tank, Sarge Green, Tan, if any of those colors were available.

This was a question I had to ask myself in April when it was obvious my 2018 JLUR was never coming home. At 22days and 1,700 miles the electrical system went bat shit crazy. and the steering wandered without any resolution
I felt like an idiot doing it then and may still regret it later, but I opted for another JLUR.. A year newer, with a one touch top in blue..
Knock wood, it's got 18k on the clock and has been a total joy both as a commuter and many trips to the coal country for mud and rock climbing fun.. ZERO issues to date..

I've always been curious... Do they cut you a deal to try to get you to stick with the same brand / model?
I could have cashed out for the original sticker minus milage or apply it towards sticker on another vehicle. Since I paid much less than sticker on the 18, the deal was acceptable.

If FCA bought mine back...I’d go with a Ram 1500.

If I have to take too much of a loss, and trade out on my own, I’d jump ship from FCA..but I’m not there yet.

Ex-auto quality engr & mgt. Now just enjoy life.
Fortunately, my JLUR is doing well. However, if it went to crap and qualified for a buy back I would first go look at the new Defender and see that configured the way I like it was going to cost $25000 more than the Rubicon. Then I would go over to the Toyota dealership and buy a 4Runner TRD Pro in Army Green.
