18" vs 20" for light off-roading

Wrote a post earlier about trading in my '13 JGC Limited w/ 18" and trading in for the '14 Overland that comes stock with 20"s as many of you know. Question is, I don't do any hardcore off-roading or beat any brush, so will 20"s be ok doing light off-roading? I added the quadra-drive option, but have really been digging the look of the 20"s and have never had them before. Just want to make sure I don't take "too" big a hit on the trails. Thanks for any input guys.

Newbie question I know, but appreciate the feedback

Re: 18" vs 20" for light off-roading

I normally go down some fire roads and do some real light off-roading and have not had any trouble with the 20's. You just need to be a little more careful not to scrape the rim going by rocks and can't bomb down rocky roads unless you want to risk a bubble on the sidewall. YMMV
