The 4 door version is too ugly for me. I don't think I would buy a 2 door version but it would probably look cool.

A Jeep Wrangler will always be a 2-Door to me.

I don't think there is a business case for a 2-Dr

The way sales are going, in a few years Jeep will need to build a case to keep Wrangler 2-door!

Sahara 2-door is already gone. I’m sure they will first drop 2-door from another trim, or deny the 2-door to some special edition, before the inevitable happens.

I think the only time you might see a 2 door gladiator will be at EJS in a few weeks, or at least I'm hoping they put one together for that. As it's been said when you look at pickup sales and JK/JL sales I don't think you could really blame them if they didn't make a 2 door gladiator.

But I doubt it will ever be in the land of Too Much Truck.

I agree 100%, the whole proportions of the gladiator seems off to me. I think the only way it would look right would be minimum 35" tires or might even need to go as big as 37". The Rubicon version is the only one that looks moderately okay, the others look bad with smaller road tires on them. This of course, is all based off the pictures of them so far, I may change my mind once I see one in person. I would love to see an extended cab version with a small backseat like on the Colorado, Taco, etc, with a 6' bed.

I wouldn't be surprised in those few years that the Rubicon will be the only 2dr you can buy.




I like the JT, but man that thing is loooong. I was hoping they would have went more in this direction.

Unfortunately, a 2-door Pickup is a non-starter these days. That is, unless they are looking to turn a VW Golf into some sort of unibody pickup.

It'll be a shame if it ever comes to pass, the death of the true Jeep, IMO.

When the JL build and price website was first up and running I was extremely disappointed in the demise of the 2-door Sahara, since I was interested in seeing what a replacement for my JK Sahara might cost. Totally lame that those of us that want a decked out 2-door with painted fenders get pushed into a Rubicon we don't want or need.

And at a no-go price of $50K+, I might add.....

I think the 4 door is butt ugly and useless, I would never buy one.
On the other hand, a 2 door Extended Cab with at least a 6 1/2' bed sounds pretty nice..
