Default Selectrac or quadradrive?

hi guys I have 2 wjs ...a 1999 laredo with the inline six and selectrac and a 2004 limited with the quadradrive and v8.
my question is this....I want to lift one about 2 to 3 inches and put a little larger tire on it for the purpose of towing behind my motorhome and exploring the back country in my travels. This is going to replace my RZR that we use now. I realize that the RZR is more offroad capable but we need something that can be used in national parks and on the hiway for road trips. So my thinking is the lift and tires and maybe removable sway bar links and diff locks....which vehicle would be more suitable? Thanks

The select track with the I6 would be my vote.

Id go with the laredo, in 99 it has more torque and they changed from the 242J selectrac (1998) to the New Venture 242 transfer case(1999) which are very desirable transfer cases as to get rid of the full time 4 wheel.

Those are the same transfer case.

NP and NV are the same company after a name change. The 242 remained thesar between the changes other than the name change. Its certainly not a bad transfercase.
