Looking to purchase my first Jeep

So this is my first post on here

I'm looking at purchasing JK Unlimted, but I'm having a great deal of trouble trying to decide on which model to get (Sport, sahara, rubicon, rubicon X).

What are the main differences between the models, and is the extra price of the rubicon worth it?

Money isn't a problem. I'm planing on upgrading and customizing in due time (lifts, amour, wheel/tires, etc.)

It will be a daily computer.(75% on road, 25% fun).

Also would it be worth while to purchase a used one already with some upgrades to save me some money overall?

Thanks in advance

So the rubicon comes with Dana 44's front and rear, Lockers front and rear and a 4:1 transfer case.

If down the road you plan on ripping out the axles and putting Dana 60's under her then get an X so that you won't have such an initial up front cost.

However if you just want to do mild wheeling a Rubicon is more than enough to do that. Then again an X can do it as well.

If you buy used then you have to figure out what lift did they install, how hard did they abuse it, did they maintain it well.

If I was going to do it all over again, I would have gotten an X and ripped the axles out for Dana 60's and a atlas Xfer case.
