D35 on the X.
D44 option on D44.
X won't have as many niceties in the interior as the Sport.
X probably won't have tow hooks f/r.

Other than the D35/D44 axle option, not a whole lot of difference that you can't add aftermarket.

I'm sure there are a few things, but those are the main ones that come to my mind.

I have an SE, so ANY Jeep was nicer than mine from the factory.

SE = 4cyl D30/D35 & 4.11 gears

X/Sport = 6cyl D30/D35 or D30/D44 with 3.07 or 3.73 gears

Rubicon = 6cyl D44/D44 with 4.11 gears and lockers.

Sahara is b/w the Sport and Rubi. 6cyl D30/35 or D30/44 w/3.73 or 4.11 gears - no lockers. Flares 1" wider (like rubi) but painted to match body. Interior slightly more options than sport and about same as Rubi if I'm not mistaken (seat back pockets, custom fabric/pleather seats, upgraded stereo, etc).

The Rubicon is the only one that matters.

My X has 6 cyl with D30 front and D35 rear 3.73 gears and I thought the interior was the norm but I guess there were more options. I will have to look at the inside of a rubi to see what I missed. Mine did come with the upgraded sound package though.

x2 Scout. Rubicons are all that matter Just playing, the only thing you really need to know about buying a Jeep is that it has the top and doors you want (hard/soft/half/full) the transmission and engine you want, the options you want, and the rear axle you want. If your going to wheel it, try and find one with a D44 rear. Otherwise, everything else like tow hooks and gear ratios, will be upgraded later if you modify it right. Rubicons on the other hand, are basically built Jeeps from the factory, that only really need some extra armor and a lift kit
