I understand that Jeep is looking to cut cost on the Wrangler but still giving us prop rods instead of struts is something i will never understand, especially when you can often get an aftermarket set for $100 which are just as good as any OEM spec strut.

Rubicon is the only one that looks really good. The only thing I noticed in this review is that Sofyan said you can fit 35s with a lift from Jeep, but the JL Rubicon has a 2 inch higher fender to fit 35s without a lift. They stated that in the press release.

I've noticed this as well. I think the situation is this: 'yes, you can fit 35s to a JL Rubicon without any additional lift, but if you want to retain articulation then you are going to need a mild lift as well.' My personal instinct would to be to go for a mild lift anyway especially if adding a winch as it gives opportunity to better balance/correct the inevitable dip.

This was a helpful video from the stand point of an interior shot with a known height for the person sitting in the front seat of the Rubicon version of the JL. Sofyan stated he is 5'7". While I have not sat in one, being 6'4" with 36" inseam, along with 250lbs of pasta loving weight, I do have a worry that I'm not going to fit as well as I'd hoped... Guess it is time to go find out for myself!

In a way they had to. Trying to appeal to a wider market isn't when a product feels bare bones if you know what I mean especially when the market is flush with so many options. The Wrangler is nice but we can't discount what else can be bought.
