Hey guys I'm looking at getting my first wrangler and was wondering if ya'll had some advice from experience on 2 seats vs. 4 seats. I am looking at a couple different used YJs and most have a full soft top with back seats but one that I really like has no back seat and a wrap around cab soft top and toneu. I am a single guy but my friends and I go out all the time. Do you think I will regret not getting the extra seats or will the extra cargo room and smaller enclosed cab outweigh the lack of seating? I just don't want to immediately have to buy a full soft top and seats because that would put this particular Jeep out of my price range.
If I was still single and had no kids, 2 door all the way.
But this was the only way back to Jeeping, so here I am with a JKU riding the bumpy paved roads to baseball practice, bounce u. Maybe if we have time, home depot, bed bath and beyond, and olive garden. FML. lol.
2 door jeep all the way! If you want 4 doors go buy a hummer.
Ignorance is bliss.
License to kill gophers by the government of the United Nations. Man, free to kill gophers at will. To kill, you must know your enemy, and in this case my enemy is a varmint. And a varmint will never quit - ever. They're like the Viet Cong - Varmint Cong. So you have to fall back on superior intelligence and superior firepower. And that's all she wrote.
Just get the Jeep you want and put a back seat in it. You will still be able to fold down the rear seat and cover it with the tonneau cover when your not using it. Soft tops and rear seats are easy to get and cheap. Pretty sure Rugged Ridge sells a rear seat for only $200. Just make sure you got the hardware for the seat belts so no one flies out when you hit a bump
My experience is that if you're going to have your top off most of the time, most people dont want to ride in the back anyway, especially at high speeds, because of the wind...pansies. So, that being said, 2 seats would be plenty. And like they said above, you can always buy another seat and hardwear for fairly cheap. Hope it helps.
i picked mine up similar to this one, and once i decided i wanted a back seat i spent $300 total. sounds like alot but i talked to people on WF and i got a back seat for $25, the brackets for $10, and a hardtop for $250. get the one with the 2 seats, and if you dont like it just do what i did and search for deals
