I dunno, I had an 04 Unlimited with a 6 inch lift and 35s and depending on the situation, it would spank SWB TJs. Mostly this was climbing obstacles such as stair steps, or rutted hill climbs. The only place that the SWBs would beat on me was areas where I would high center, such as the peaks of the hillclimbs.

Course, it could have been the driver....

it really depends on the terrain and obstacles. The Unlimited's longer wheelbase would help it it certain situations, but the decreased breakover angle would also hurt it in other situations.

The decision on whether or not to get a regular Wrangler or an Unlimited should really be based on what you want and need overall. Do you want/need a 4-dr vehicle with ample room for extra passengers and gear, or would you be fine with the smaller 2-dr?
