You don't need a rubicon to offroad. If your going to do some hard offroading and can afford it then the rubicon would be nice. You can make your jeep as big and loud as the law will let you. Look into you state laws about lift and emissions. As far as tire size, from what I've seen bigger and more aggressive is better in the mud.

You don't need a Rubicon for wheeling. But being as you said you'd like to run 33's or 35's, and are going to run in the mud, I'd try my hardest to get a Rubicon. Stock axles won't hold up well to high RPM's with 33's or 35's. But that's just my opinion. Plus, you'd more than likely have to re-gear a stock Wrangler. A Rubicon already comes with 4.10's. Just some food for thought.

you want a rubicon, but you don't want something too new? That's tuff to do seeing as the Rubies are '03 models..... is this a seriuos question?
