2 door JK owners gimme your opinions...

How practical are the 2 door Wranglers, as a everyday vehicle. I plan on takeing out the rear seats in mine. Im curious if removing the back seats make the 2 door allot more practicle? Or is the amount of cargo space that is freed up still not all that usefull? Could someone possible post some pictures of they're 2 door with the rear seats removed? It be appreciated. I would go to the dealership, but I work and, or go to school 7 days a week...

Thats cool. For example how much stuff can you fit/carry back there what was the most stuff you carried at one time back there?........

I've had my back seats out for a couple weeks now. I really like the extra space it provides. Going from the little space that was behind the back seat to the entire rear section is definitely practical.

If you dont get any pics by this evening, I'll go out and snap some for you.

I wish the wifes got it in Chicago this weekend

I got 3 fullsize tires in mine with the seat folded..the fourth rode shotgun

Its not a real big gain I wouldnt think..... about one more tire sitting up on end would be my guess

The back seat folds up as it is anyway. I use it as a daily drive and yea sometimes I wish I had more room in the back but I get by, no biggy. That being said it is a pain the the ass to try to put something large in the back seat from the front.

This really doesnt do it any justice since my top was down and it is cutting off the view of some of the rearward space. If I have time tomorrow, I'll take another pick with the top up from the back looking forward.

We put big stuff in by either taking the back window out, or dropping the top. No use dealing with the damned seats.

With the 2 dr the space is limited fo the people trying to get to the back seat. It takes a bit of acrobatics. So I removed my back seat also. Much more space.

When my grandsons get old enough to go out for a day with me then I will replace it.

I have a TJ and during the summer I keep my rear seat out all the time. It does free up some space, but If you plan on hauling large parcels you will need something like the 4 door. For example I just bought a 46 in TV th4 box was to long, so I had to get my father-inlaw's truck to pick it up. Sometimes I can manage to get large Items in it if I don't have the top on and have to put them in diagnolly resting on the spare tire or striaght up and down sticking out above the roll bars.

Unzipping the window in a hard top might be a little difficult

Jase- Thanks again for the pictures. I assume that is the Infinite Subwoofer on the right hand side? Approxmently how deep is this cargo area w/o the seats 3 feet, 4 feet?

i havent had my back seat in my jeep in weeks, and its easy as hell to take in and out so storage space is never a real problem plus you only gain about a foot or more room straight across with the seat out instead of folded
