JK Unlimited breakover angle offroad problem?

I was reading a review of the Rubicon Unlimited and that guy writing the article thought that Rubbie's low (supposedly) breakover angle of about 20 to 21 degrees was low and might be a problem off road. Now I was really surprised by this comment because:

1) How in the heck are reviewers in a number of articles taking unmodifed Unlimited Rubicons and driving them on hardcore off-road trails like the Rubicon itself and they are reporting that the vehicle performed really well

2) I had a 1999 Isuzu Trooper with about the same breakover angle and 31 degrees departure and approach angles it wasn't getting hung up off road.

Has any JKU owners been having off road problems due to the supposedly low breakover angle?

I did all that I could with my ieep when it was stock. There were a few things that I had to watch out for.
The aproch angle was on the low side if you are woried about hiting that crapy plastic air damn. The belly was really east to drag. And if you left the hitch on the back it didnt take much of a ledge for it to drag when going down.
Keep in mind Im talking about doing things to see just how far I could push the jeep. I never had any truble when just messen around in the woods.
I'm here to participate. I didnt come all this way just to watch.
