If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.

they'll all work the same in the snow, just make sure to get a good snow tire. i would also stick with the 6 cyl engine b/c the 4 cyl can be a dog on the highway.

one with lockers may be a good option-however. most but not all. do not have lockers from factory. other than that good tires all stock jeeps are pretty much the same

Iow, he's suggesting a Rubicon, but any Wrangler will be fine in the snow with decent snow tires.......

unlimited has a longer wheel base so that would be a good choice.

Wranglers aren't all that good in the snow on the street. short wheelbase makes the ends want to swap. LJ's are better...if you're stuck on a wrangler, look for the extra wheelbase. otherwise an XJ or full size bronco would be best. truetrac's front and rear will give either rig awesome traction in the snow.
