I say if you can swing it, go with a Rubicon. You'd probably save yourself money in the long run. If you went to 33's, you wouldn't have to regear, and even if you decided to go with 35's, it would be livable. I have an X and wish like heck I would have had the money to get a rubicon. Unfortunately, I didnt' even have the money to get the S package with the 32" tires. I'm stuck with the little 29's and I scrape on everything out on the trail, its really annoying.
