How much more, or will, the new 07 Rubicon (stock) be capable off-road than the 06? Thanks

PS Does the unlimited 06 Rubicons' extra length significantly reduce the off-road capablility vs. the regular 06 Rubicon?

We have a 06 LJ, a 07 Jk (short wheelbase), and a 07 Jk Unlimited at work. Both the long Jeeps are Rubicon editions (the short JK is not) and all of them have our long arms and 37's. The 07 is nice because of the longer wheelbase and wider stance (in either the short or long editions respectively). They also have larger wheel wells for bigger tires at smaller amounts of lift (the JK's have 4.5" kits and the LJ has a 7.5" kit). Obviously the LJ/TJ's have a larger aftermarket support, but that will change quickly. Only problem I see with the 07's is lack of power (both of our are getting motor swaps).
Go test drive both at your local dealer ship and see what you think, beacause both are great platforms for trail rigs.
