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.
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.
I didnt like the unlimited when it first came out... But now all I want is an unlimited Rubi... I love teh long wheel base with two doors... especially soft top with half doors on 4 inches and 33's... Someone please loan me $30k..
