What do you guys prefer and what would you recommend to a single man in his early twenties? Going to get a Sport if its a 2 door and a Sport S if its a 4 door. Just haven't decided on the JK or JKU. If I got a 2 door, I'd take the backseats out. I'd like to hear everyone's opinion. Thanks!

I love my 2 door. I run without the back seat as well. But it really comes down to what you like best. You're going to get a lot of childish responses on both sides. At least you didn't ask auto or manual or TJ or JK...lmao.

I'm in your same situation, 23.. not married. I went with the 4 door because I can take friends out camping or something with it. Load up 4 of us plus gear and be fine, whereas with a 2 door I'd need lots of external storage racks to make it happen. It depends on your needs though.. either way.. its still a Jeep.

Loved my 2 door when I was in my 20s. Kept the backseat in though...

Now, in my 30s, I love my 4 door because I love having space for people and things. It really depends on what you think you'll be using it for.

I drive a 4 door. There is more space for bacon inside.

31, 2 kids and 2dr. I have an Explorer if I need it. I drove a 4 dr and it didn't feel like a Jeep, but that's just my opinion. Read the other 2 vs 4 threads and get what YOU want in the end.

What do you intend on doing w/ it?

Drive them both, there are advantages and disadvantages to each one. We have both, but if I could only keep one of them I'd keep the 4dr, hands down. Others would pick the 2dr. You'll hear alot of bs about 2dr jeeps being the only 'real' jeep, but that usually comes from insecure guys who also think JK's aren't real jeeps, and years ago thought TJ's weren't real jeeps, and automatics aren't real jeeps, and hard tops don't belong on real jeeps, and carpet doesn't belong in real jeeps, and real jeeps should never be washed, and on and on..

Tough one- but I would go 2 door. You can fit 4 chicks in either one, but with a 2 door, only one could be fat.

4 door if you have a family and its your daily driver.

Mostly ditto, but in my early sixties. Back seat only goes in if we have out of town guests who want to go for a ride.

I've been tied down for almost 40 years, and the ties (kids) have worked loose. When my grandson comes to visit, back seat goes in for his car seat. DUDE! Grow UP already!

Been married 27 years and we recently bought a 2-dr Sahara. Soon afterward we took out the rear seat and stored it in the basement. No need for more than 2 seats with the two of us and the turning radius of the 2-dr makes my wife very happy that she bought it.
