Oh I'm not defensive at all, just making sure everyone is on the same sheet of music. And you contradict the OP's original question with your statement here. He's asking why get the Rubi if people just remove all the asthetic stuff anyway (bigger tires/wheels, etc.). Here, you're arguing that if it's just a mall crawler, why get the Rubi? That's not was he is asking...at all. Of course the Sahara/Sport are better options (price-wise) for mall crawling.Well my rebuttal to this is a Maybe. (Again, keeping with the theme of the OP)
If you ACTUALLY take it off road and use the stuff, sure! But if you mall crawl, you did nothing more than waste the money on something you'll never use if you indeed bought it for "the electronic sway bar", blah blah, etc.
I'm not hating on the Rubicon whatsoever. An amazing vehicle but again I'm following the theme of the OP original question.
No need to get all defensive lol
