I'm going to! How many times must we see this BULLSHIT !!
Well to be fair, not much to talk about on the 2-doors since they do not exist yet. I am starting to think they are like Keyser Söze. A myth, a legend.

Sorry to say, but that is CAPITALISM.
Theres a fine line there that I thought most corporates nowadays were smart enough to understand. Sure, they sold more 4 doors now. They would have probably sold them anyway, just making the late 4 doors order wait a bit longer and not get their vehicles almost immediately.

What they did now was to alienate some potential future customers. How many people have been put off ordering 2 doors from reading this thread? I dont know, but its probably more than 0. I for one am still waiting for my order, but I doubt ill be forgetting this anytime soon. If that upcoming Ford Bronco is worth anything Im jumping ship in 2020, since Ive never had this experience with Ford...

So yeah, pumped out some extra quick money making 4 doors because "capitalism", but lose a future customer thats still going to be buying 5 vehicles in his lifetime... mmm worth it, i think not. Its all about the customers, a valuable business lesson learnt from Amazon.

Obviously this assumes any of that reasoning is actually what FCA was thinking, who knows.

FCA could not care less about you, me, or the scant few of us on this forum. The JLU makes them the money, and that is their priority.

Unethical? Now that's a political discussion for not this forum.

Yes its capitalism , but for many of us this is our 2nd,3rd,4th jeep. My third and second factory order. Good business is keeping your loyal customers happy. I think jeep owes all us loyal 2doorers a 500.00$ golden ticket!

This is a little of topic, but I have a question for those who wish to answer. I order my 2 dr sport s/ with PST 1/8, my salesman said I could not add another option once in D with VIN, however, I read on an earlier post that if the salesman calls FCA, that can/ and will modify the order.

Here's the question; about the only option I didn't opt for for the Rear Differential Upgrade and AT Tires. Now, I may do some off road (my first Jeep) but not a majority of the time. Would it be worth the upgrade, especially for the tires?

Remember all the wranglers are trail rated, which means all of them are better off-road than most other vehicles on the market. If you arent planning on doing anything too hectic I wouldnt worry about it too much

obviously the tires are an easy upgrade. the differentials a little more trcky to do yourself, but thats what s so great about owning a wrangler no shortage of aftermarket parts and shops to install them if you cant .

Figured I'd just post the images here.
Love the red. However, it's the colour of my current JK and I need to do something different. I landed on Bright White, but not entirely happy with that.

Also, never noticed before that the rear seat headrests fold down. That's cool because that's a rear visibility issue with my JK.

also did bright white with black flares and black premium soft top - it looks awesome. thinking of putting on a 10th anniversary front number with red hooks and wheel lockers with red ring - that should give it just enough bling without being overwhelming

I also got the white, I think it looks great. Maybe not so exotic but I think it looks the best

I'm doing the same thing with a hardtop - black with black fender flares. Combine that with the black vent covers and you get a striking black and white contrast which is what sold me on that choice.

However, I had major second thoughts two weeks ago. I was driving down the street in Winnipeg with the most car dealerships. Every dealership I passed had white vehicles facing the street. It looked like the vast majority of cars for sale in the city are now white. I thought, what have I done? Am I going to end up with a vehicle lost in a sea of sameness?

And then it hit me - Winnipeg Whiteout. Our NHL Jets have made the playoffs this year, which doesn't happen that often. Fan tradition is to wear white to playoff games. This year, car dealers have gotten into the act and made sure every vehicle facing passing traffic is white. Yesterday, I took my Vette to the dealership for an oil change and every vehicle on the showroom floor was white. This will eventually pass.
