I'm addicted to wranglers, every time I sell one I want another, I'm on my 4th now, see pic below. They are hands down the funnest vehicle for the money IMO, they are like nothing else, and cheap to mod!!
First off the 2 door is just a wrangler, and the 4 door version is the wrangler unlimited.
of the 4 door unlimited, the trims are Sport, Sahara, and Rubicon.
The way I look at it, the sport is the base, the sahara is the luxe and the rubicon is the offroad - from the factory.
They all have the same engine now, they used to have a 4 cyl and 6 cyl but they are all 6 now. They are all trail rated, and all very capable off road especially with a lift/tires
The sahara and rubicon come with nicer, larger wheels, rubi has larger tires, sahara has body color fenders etc. But if I were you, just looking for a DD with a lift and bigger wheels/tires, I would get the sport - save the money over the rubicon, and do it up the way you want. The rubicon has locking diff's, upgraded axels, etc but you wont need any of that for daily driving so why pay for it. you can get the look you want, cheaper with the sport without giving up anything you would want.
Here's the one I'm in currently
