Re: Can't decide. TJ or LJ??
Man, that's a tough call...and I think the answer comes down to this: how hard will you wheel it? If you expect to spend some time offroad, and like to push your limits, then I'd go with the Rubicon. If it's likely that 90% of your driving will be on pavement with the Offroad driving consisting of 2-tracks and mild trails, with an occasional hard trail ride, then I'd suggest getting the LJ and modding as needed.
Keeping in mind that the TJ platform is lighter weight and a bit less "big tire friendly" than the JK... You can build without as much need for huge components. (Suspension and axle failures will almost always come down to stress caused by weight, tire size, or engine power).
You can always add bigger axles, lockers, deeper gearing, etc to an LJ, but stretching a TJ Rubicon for extra space is a bit more difficult.
