Re: New Rubicon or a Hummer H1?
Hummer = Heavy, wide, lumbering, expensive to repair or modify, more complex than a Jeep, and the body is Aluminum.
Jeep = Light, narrow, agile, moderate to repair and modify, less complex than a Hummer, and body is Steel.
I don't completely understand your intentions of what you want to do with either, but I have never seen the Hummer as capable vehicle for trail, rock, and "east coast style" off roading. In the open flatter terrain they seem to be pretty good, but you have to remember they were basically designed to be a troop and weapons carrier and not for more serious off roading. I'm also just too cheap to put 30K into something that will be beat, bent, mudded, rocked and rolled.
If your not in a big hurry to get somewhere or need a fast vehicle why don't you check out some Unimogs?
