Well, I have narrowed my choices a bit since my last post. I have ruled out the Hard Rock as being a bit more $$$ than I am willing to pay.
This brings me to the Willys vs the Rubicon. With either model I would save up for a steel winch bumper and extended rock sliders. As for a lift in the future, I don't anticipate more than 1.5 - 2" and a slight tire upgrade to 33" when the stock tires need replacement. In addition to using my JKU as a daily commuter (2 hours round trip), I anticipate using it in snow and on trails/sand in the summer.
So here's my Question
: since I won't be going mudding or rock crawling, would the Rubicon's added features be a noticeable/needed improvement for my proposed use
over the Sport (Willys) with 3.73 axle?
Thanks for any advice.
P.S. Anybody heard anything about the proposed factory 2" lift option?
