Your 4 cyl. vs. 6 cyl. question has come up many times in this group. It is almost unanimous that the 4 cyl is fine for local driving and for offroading. But, it is also most commonly believed that the power is not adequate for highway driving. I go along with that.
I test drove both an SE and a Sport, and this convinced me that, as much highway driving as I do (27 miles one way to work every day plus business trips occasionally of up to 300 miles one way), I needed the Sport with the 4.0 L I-6 engine.
You are getting this Jeep as a second family vehicle, so maybe you don't plan on taking trips in it, and, if this is the case, then the 4 cyl may be fine for your purposes.
Either way, you are definitely on the right track in considering a Jeep! They are a BLAST! I just wish that I had discovered the joy of Jeeps much earlier in my life. I was 51 last December when I got my first ever Wrangler.
Hope this helps, and please keep us posted on your progress in searching for a Jeep.

Feel free to email me with any questions. I am NOT an expert on the technical stuff about Jeeps, but I can sure tell you about the fun they are to own!
