Defender limited max vs 3 seat?

I’m buying a limited this year.  I’m torn between the max and the regular cab. I’d like the extra seating and inside protection, and I assume the LWB rides nicer, but I am concerned about the length when using it in difficult terrain, rocks etc.  Anybody get the max and regret it?  I assume the max is a bit quieter as well with the engine farther back.
