The LJ has a longer wheel base, thus a better chance of making a uphill obstacle. The only down side to this is, it is also easier to high center. A TJ running on 33" tires, is about the equivalent, of a LJ running on 37" tires, as far as the point of high centering. Hope this helps, a little.

all depends where you wheel , if you wheel where there are ledges and you need alonger wheelbase then an LJ is better if you wheel along old stream beds or trails int eh woods a TJ is better

Yeah, I passed on a couple of good looking jeeps just b/c they were lj's, it just wasn't what I was looking for, I think the tj's look better. On the other hand more room, and a better ride can be found in an unlimited, as far as off road capability, I don't see any tremendous advantages one way or another.

yup looks like someone hacked it and added a foot section too it, it just doesnt look good, but that not the reason to get it or not, its really about what type of wheeling your gonna be doing

LJ is an unofficial "internet" term for the LWB TJ. They are all TJs, some just have a long wheel base.
