If I did more legit "wheeling" four wheeling I'd get the Wrangler in a heartbeat. As it is though, my Trailhawk fits my needs just about perfectly. Over 99% of my miles have been on pavement or snow, commuting to work, going skiing, going on road trips, and using 4wd-lite forest service roads to get to trailheads. A Wrangler would be overkill 4wd with less comfort but it's definitely the more capable off-roader.

I think the TH is on par with a stock wrangler but put it up against the Rubicon or a wrangler with a locker and and there's a pretty big gulf, most of that is caused by the lack of wheel articulation. When I bought the TH I thought i'd be doing fire roads at the most but I've found that I enjoy hitting the trails. If I'd have know that I'd have bought a Rubicon but the trade value on the TH is abysmal so I'm going to do the next best thing and buy an XJ and slowly build it up.
