2011 2WD Wrangler?

I've been playing around on the Jeep website configuring a 2011 Wrangler Unlimited, and I noticed that there is no longer an option to select a 2WD model! Are they doing away with 2WD Wranglers for 2011?

I'm DEFINITELY not opposed to this. I was just surprised!

Rentals; Texans ; people who really like the look, but are honest enough to admit they'll never see gravel; cheerleaders.

Mostly rentals.

I believe it was CAFE rating related.....
Here in Florida it is hard to find 4wd vehicles and my local Jeep dealer says that the 2wd JKU was very popular as it was the only convertible SUV, and people were worried about the additional drivetrain components that they would never use.

I have a 2wd wrangler (bout to put a D44 front axle and all the components to make it into a 4wd) and its not bad. I still go off roading in mine. I don't see why its such a big deal. Sure it doesn't have 4wd stock but who cares? Some people rather 2wd to not worry about the extra weight in front axles, transfer cases and front drive shafts. I got a 2wd because I was going to be doing highway driving for out-of-state college and it gets way better MPG than the 4wd. I'm only doing a conversion because I can do it for cheap. Everyone needs to stop hating. A jeeps a jeep. BTW the muddin picture was before I got lift and AT tires. That was with no lift and highway tires :flip off:
