What are the differences in the different models?

Ok...I did the search thing....yada yada yada...and didnt see anything that answers my question.

What are the major differences if any in the different types of models.
Ive been looking all over for a jeep and have found a few.

One I was looking at was an Islander...
Ive heard of:
Rubicons
Sports
Unlimited
Islanders
Rio Grande
Sahara
Im sure there might be more but dont know.

I really want a jeep and was wandering what the differences are...
Thanks to everyone that replies....

Have you checked out wikipedia? Most of those different packages are simply different trim. The most vastly different one would be the Rubicon. It has lower gearing, lockers, electronic sway bar disconnects, and typically a bit stronger axle. Depending on the model year.

I'f you really want a jeep, you've gotta decide "WHY" then model/finances/social status/NEEDS/requirements will decide !!

Go by a dealer and get some different model Brochures !!

That'll give you all the different pros/cons and PICTURES--

Unlimited is the stretched wheelbase Jeep LJ (or the 4-door JK)
Islander, Rio Grande, and Sahara are interior/exterior packages
Sport is the 6 cyl. version with more amenities then the X
Rubicon is the granddaddy with D44 front/rear, 4:1 transfer case, and 4.10 gearing
