No, the Jeep Wrangler and its ultimate off-road Rubicon variant share the same basic body shape. Both the two-door Wrangler and the four-door Wrangler Unlimited are available as Rubicon models outfitted for off-road use, and in both cases they have greater approach and departure angles than other versions, meaning they can enter and exit steeper inclines without scraping bottom.
With the two-door Wrangler Rubicon, the approach angle is 44 degrees and the departure angle is 40. The Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon's approach angle is 44 degrees and the departure angle is 41 degrees. For either the Wrangler Sport or Wrangler Unlimited Sport the angles are 41 and 37 degrees, respectively.
The two-door Wrangler has a shorter body (163.8 inches) and wheelbase (95.4 inches between front and rear wheels) than the Wrangler Unlimited, which is 184.4 inches overall and 116 inches between the front and rear wheels. All of this information is available in the specifications charts provided with the model reports for both models in the Cars.com Research section.
