Graves Having driven a 2 door JK and owning a 4 door, the 2 door is much more fun but the practicality of the 4 door can't be beat. Then again, with square headlights and 4 doors, I don't own "real" jeeps so my post is invalid . Seriously the 2 door is a blast to drive so if you're wanting "fun", stick with the 2 door. The 4-door feels vastly different.

unityroad 3, 2 door jeeps here. Wife thinks 4 doors look like hummers. No regrets on the 2drs. Have a lovely, lovely day.

JerryJeepster I owned a tj with 2 kids and loved it. It was challenging at times but I was young and flexible. I have another 2 door now and I'm on my own and love it! Great on the trails and even better around the city. Especially with illegal u turns!

Happy JK I bought my two door 364 days before my son was born. Now we have a two year old and a a six month old, and using my wife's Rav4 to go everywhere
That is my only regret. Mine is a DD and a work vehicle, need to be creative for space but after a while you get used to it. I really enjoy my first Jeep.

I already have all my mods planned out, if I had a four door mods would be completely different. The four door is more expensive msrp and generally it costs more to modify, especially if you want to replace door accessories.

I did plant a seed in my wife's head to buy a four door, would be awesome.

Omar Brannstrom Part 5

I could not resist and are never satiesfied Had a 2 door Sahara 2012 Wrangler.

Saw a brand new 2013 4 door unlimited 10th anniversary Rubicon at my dealer, they only import 13 ex of this model to hole Sweden. I bought it.

Reason? More space I think and/or a new toy? It is still a Jeep

I love the hood





Sleep in it





Watching a movie



I think it looks awesome with no lift and 265/70/17 Cooper st Maxx on Black Rock Yuma rims.



Same wheels as above on my 2 door

Old Dogger Two (2) door forever...........

dodge Very happy with a 2 door. I know 4 doors are becoming more popular but I hope they don't stop making the 2 doors version.

Not for one moment! I would have gotten a Cherokee if I needed four doors, besides, no one vehicle will ever do it all. Enjoy all the things you can only do with your two door jeep and next time leave someone home. :-)

yjswampthing Seems like if you're questioning at all go with the 4 door. Really no drawbacks compared to the 2 door that make any real world difference IMO.

I'd say if you're on the fence and go 2 door,
You may always question whether you should've gone with 2 extra doors, 60/40 seats, more
Cargo, more
Towing, better resale, etc.

Barmanvarn None. Love the short turning radius.

It is hard to find room to store gear but I love a challenge.

Then we drove an hour to pick up the small boat and another hour to the lake. Granted its just my wife and I 80% of the time and we would have had enough room for everything without the 3rd person.

I felt like such an ass not having enough room or everything and everybody.

When I first started looking at the wranglers I wanted nothing but a 4-door mostly for the extra room and partially for the towing. After driving an 2009 and then driving my 2012 I decided I could get along with a 2 door.

Part of me is starting to regret my decision.

Someone pleas talk me into loving my 2 door again!!??!
I did the same thing, bit the bullet and bought a 4 door. I figured it would be better to do before I started modding had the 2 door for 8 months.

ClayR Love my 2 door...all 146 miles of it! No regrets. Of course I drive different cars for work so it's sole purpose is having fun.
11-20-2013 08:03 PM
TwoNin9r i suppose once mine has a different suspension i'll like it more... do i regret it? no way, but i'm jarred violently if i go over a speedbump at like 2 degrees off dead straight on...

There's NO Question

2 Doors look like Jeeps. JKU 4 Doors look like this. My 2 door ROCKS!
11-20-2013 07:04 PM
Doingjeepthings I bought the two door and came from a Lexus GS350... I needed a change. I have not for one second wished I had a 4 door. Granted I know I am comparing apples and oranges here but the average person seems to think my old car was the more practical one. Maybe it's just my lifestyle but I find the Jeep to be infinitely more practical with the just folding the rear seats up. I went camping maybe a month ago and it was a breeze to fit everything. Soft top made me nervous to hide the cooler from bears though... that's a difference story.

my 2cents.

The 2 door might have the essence, but the 4 door have the sales....and that is a big chunk as to why the Wrangler is still around (and having record setting sales).

Basically, to each their own...

Abdul-Hakeem I need the break over angle of the 2-door for sand dunes, and the small size and turning radius for city driving. I didn't care about the Jeep imagine and actually liked land cruisers more. I just wanted the best desert performance and the JK has that at lower cost than the land cruiser J70/LC70 or the FJ Cruiser.
The soft top means carrying fridges and furniture is also possible, something I couldn't do in a new land cruiser.

Ricanbandit I have always wanted a Jeep, always. Never got the opportunity always spent my money on Sports Cars. Now when I went to buy one, it HAD to be two door, HAD to. It was I have always envisioned a Jeep to look like. I LOVE MY JK! The cargo space sucks, actually the trunk of my Z4M has more space, but with it being me and the mrs, not really bad at all, drop the back seat and viola, everything fits (kinda). We looked at the 4 door, but it reminded me of families and soccer moms (no offense intended). Sometimes I wish for the extra space, but then when I walk up to it... I smile So the answer from this new Jeep owner is no, definitely no regrets!
11-20-2013 06:38 AM
Jstraw I wish I got the 2 door with a manny tranny... Wifey stated, "I want a 4 door automatic"! I stated, "then it has to be a rubicon"! Win win (I think)

These threads inevitably turn into "a real jeep has...." I'm on my 3rd wrangler. First two are the reason I bought the 3rd but I don't see any reason I would go back to 2dr. I know there are guys on here who have owned more jeeps and for longer than myself and have switched over to 4door.


Even getting groceries in my 2004 Rubicon was an ordeal. In my opinion - the 4 door makes the wrangler a viable option for me as I hunt, drive other people, etc. I like being able to take passengers and let's face it - no adult ever wants to try and climb in the back of a 2dr.

Really if you look at the automotive market now in general - 4 doors dominate everything. Crew cab trucks were nowhere to be found 20yrs ago now a single cab is a rarity.


So when decisions had to be made I opted for jku over a jkr.

No regrets.
