08 Model Question

I'm going to be purchasing an 08 wrangler as soon as the pricing comes out on them. I'm struggling with what model to go with. I planned on an 07 X with the 4.10s, sway bar dismount, and the rear lockers but they couldn't find one. I'm trying to build it up as close to the Rubicon without the price tag. This year the only gear ratio choice is 3.21 or 3.73s unless you go with the Rubicon. My question is how much of a difference are the 4.10 gears, rock rails, and the front and rear lockers. Do you think it's worth the extra $4000. I'm going to do basic off roading and don't plan on lifting it more than 2.5" if any.

If you're looking for an out of the box performer, then you can't go wrong with the Rubi. It's not even a consideration. If you want to wheel it, get the rubi.
