Okay, it's official... I miss my 24-105mm and wish I didn't sell it now... :( Never thought I'd hear myself say that! ::)
I sold mine today for $750.

Must admit, it is very nice lens ... worth every penny, it's only that the 24-70 II is just that good.
Have fun with the 24-70 II :)

Just got one after initially rejecting it (as a kit) in favor of the 17-40 F4L. While I find the 17-40 very good for landscape photography, I was surprised at the very good IQ from this versatile lens. Now, I'm torn apart if I'll bring both lens or just stick to the 24-105 for our family's Krabi trip this May. My wife warned me of bringing more than 2 lens. I'm thinking of just bringing a 50mm and the 24-105mm. If it were you, what would you bring?

Good to see that the 24-105L thread is still alive. The 24-70 f4 IS is definitely better than the 24-105L in the 24-70 range, but the 24-105 is much better at 71-105.
My 24-105 is very much alive, it's my core travel-lens that I couldn't do without (my travel kit typically consists of 17-40 f/4L, 24-105 f/4L, 70-300mm f/4-5.6L and a 35mm f/2 or 50 mm f/1.8 MkI).

For any other application where maximum flexibility is needed, the 24-105 is my go-to lens. Helped by good high iso there's nothing to replace it imho. I consider it my mega-zoom lens (within reason).

Note that I sold my 24-70 f/2.8 in favor of a Sigma 35mm. For such a limited zoom range I rather have the creative flexibility of a prime ;)

late to the party... but if it were me, given the choices you describe, I would bring both f/4 zooms. The 24-105 will stay on most of the time, but the 17-40 will give you FL overlap and you will have better performance than the widest portions of the 24-105. If you have the time to change lenses, for example, to avoid flare and minimize distortion at 24mm, you will appreciate having the 17-40. You will also have the UWA range which might come in handy. Wives who warn of more than two lenses are more likely to influence the time you have to get certain photos, which means you may have to take the shot, sometimes, with the lens you have on the camera.
