|931JK||Well I end up pulling the trigger on the rubicon. When I get home I'll post up some pics|

|kik||I always had 2 doors but if I needed extra cargo or passenger room I would have gotten a 4dr. It really only comes down to extra space. If I was hauling kids and gear it would be a 4dr.|

I much much much prefer driving my wife's 2 door over my 4 door. It's so much peppier and more fun.
I went for looks though... And the 4 door is the definite winner there.
As for a Rubicon? I'd guess the 2 door will be better at crawling than a 4 door so, there ya go. Buy it and have fun.

|931JK||I was really surprised at how well the unlimited rides. Is it a Cadillac? No, but a Cadillac can't go where a jeep can. It will be interesting to see the difference in the ride of the 2 door and the 4 door|

|MTNJeep||I have a 2dr Rubicon. I've had it for a month. Dual tops, full doors, half doors. I absolutely love it. I'm having more f'n fun in this Jeep. Only has seen light trail stuff so far, but that will change this summer. Do I wish I had the 4dr.... No. It works for me and I love the look of a 2dr.|

|931JK||Lol ya storage isn't a big concern, the only thing I plan on carrying around is a recovery kit.|

|Shammy OShea||you don't buy a Jeep and worry about storage...pretty soon everyone is going to be buying the JK-8 because "I just wanted to haul around couches with my Jeep"|

FYI.....I am not right now.....
Pretend REAL hard that you have both Jeeps...2 door and a 4 door.
Really think hard about during the week and on the weekend which one you would drive to here...to there...to where ever. If you really do this in a serious manor the answer you seek will be clear young grass hopper.

|2five22||The 4.10 gearing, the Rock-Trac transfer case, and the lockers are pretty sweet. Put it in 4Lo and first gear, then watch it walk slowly where it is pointed.|

|2five22||Your location in not listed, but where I wheel in Arizona, the SWB is helpful for scampering around the desert and mountains. My wife owns the Unlimited and I prefer the 2 door.|

|blackforestgreen||if you do a search, you will there are advantages and disadvantages to both.|
|06-14-2013 11:25 PM|
|HRR1||Mostly helps but there are some situations where the long wheelbase has advantages. I have the 2dr but have read on the forum some comments that led me to make that statement. I gather that most of the people who buy the long wheelbase really like the extra room for kids and equipment and perhaps a slight improvement in ride.|

|931JK||Does the shorter wheel base compared to the jkur help it or hurt it on the trails?|

|corvallisbattery||I got a 2dr 2013 JKR. My only gripe is 2000lb towing limit and the limited storage in the rear. I have no kids.. so I pulled the back seats and couldn't be happier. Ride quality is great. Quite. Doesn't look like an H2|

Owned mine for a couple of weeks now and the only complaint that I have about it is that I have to learn to carry less gear than when I take my F350 Supercab with a Crossbed toolbox. Taking the rear seat out is almost mandatory and tailgate/seatback organizers are close behind to store gear and tools.
The ride is surprisingly good for such as short wheelbase vehicle and the only time I notice it is on the highway during strong cross winds. The benefit of that is that u-turns are now a snap. I like the mileage and ease of parking.
If you have specific questions, ask away.

2 door rubicon likes and dislikes
So tomorrow I'm going to look at a 2013 2 door rubicon and I was just curious what are some of y'all's likes and dislikes about the vehicle? If I get this vehicle it will see moderate trail duty and my daily commute is only 5 miles, so ride quality isn't of the greatest importance although I won't be mad if it doesn't beat me up to bad.
