If for no other reason, I would guess the Rubicon given the tires that come from the factory.

I am more interested in locking differentials, suspension, axles, ground clearance etc.

The Rubicon has better suspension articulation and comes with selectable lockers front and rear. It also has a lower geared transfer case and as ATL mentioned, better tires. If thats not enough for you, for a couple thousand dollars you can lift it 4" and easily clear 35" tires. They Rubicon is a very capable offroad rig, even with mild modifications.

Can you also lock the central differential? Because the G class allows you to lock all 3 diffs. I heard the Rubicon low range ratio is like 4:1 which is staggering....

There's no viscous coupling or anything in the Rubicon. Its a gear to gear transfer case. When 4wd is engaged its spinning both driveshafts equally.

What do you intend to do with this? 4:1 is the sits if you're on stock tires and want to play int he mud. You can barely muster enough wheel speed to clean the treads. On the rocks however, the gearing is excellent. The 4:1 also works very well with 35's. The additional tire diameter equates to more wheel speed rendering it more capable in the mud. The new Rubi's have more hp than the older models. The older models don't have enough power to run in high range in the mud. Otherwise that would be a solution. I haven't driven the newer version so I can't say for sure.You might be able to keep them spinning in 1st gear.

Skyliner if you like speed and off roading you better choice would be a medium size truck with a long travel kit and a 4 links setup in the rear you will have approximately 18 of wheel travel up front and 20 or 21 strapped travel in the rear that amount of travel will enable you to reach speeds that you never dreamed off
A Tacoma or a ranger or the older model Toyota is the best
