The wheelbase looks significantly longer here. Does that mean the 2 door will also get longer? I don't remember people ever complaining the Wranglers are too small so why are they getting bigger/longer? Longer wheelbase will hurt breakover angle so why do it? For more comfort on the road?

Cars are just getting bigger with each generation. Customers want more interior room and cargo space. And yea a longer wheelbase will give a better ride on regular roads, generally. This is the 4 door JLU we're looking at, so the 2 door JL might still keep its tight wheelbase length.
