This will probably be a "DUH" question, but

Is a 2010 Jeep Wrangler Sport called a JKU? One guy at work tells me yes, because it's a four door, but yet I have heard of JKU's that are 2 doors. Thanks.

Droelle is right, guy at work is wrong.

I don't know whether "JKU" is a term used by Jeep, or just adopted by us folks in the market. Either way though, every new Wrangler is a "JK", whereas only a four door (whether Sport, Sahara, or Rubicon) is a "JKU".

No 2 doors are unlimited, but are just as capable. Seems like Chrysler uses "Unlimited" just because there is a longer wheelbase and 2 additional doors. More marketing than anything else. You do get a greater towing capacity and a larger fuel tank. Good to have a choice. They had to have possible H2 owners come to the light.

It's an ACRONYM for Jeep King Unlimited (JKU)

Just like Methyl Ethyl Keytone (MEK)

JKU represents ONLY 4 door JKs-nothing else in the jeep world !!

Sure lonely at the top !

Unless you buy a Unlimited 2006 or older. The TJ version of Unlimited was only 2 door but had a longer wheel base.

Dang I miss my old Unlimited.
