Here'a a DIY awning design that has many features of a batwing awning. It's easy to put up, take down, plus other awesome features...and it's inexpensive and easy to make. https://youtu.be/2lWxYPAzWjs

Anything like this work on the 2 door wrangler JL
You may have already found your answer or purchased an awning...
but I came across this youtube video and it looks like they do have 270° awnings for the 2 door JL!

I'd run far away from the RR awnings. I had a 270 that snapped at the hinges even though the legs and awning corners were still staked down. The broken joints ripped through the fabric.

Thanks for sharing your experience. The compact size of the RR is great for the 2 door, but I did read some reviews questioning their stability. Your experience kind of rests that case in my mind. Do you have a new awning setup that you like?

I have an OVS 180° awning on my teardrop that has been through the ringer weather wise, and I can recommend them, but I'm not sure what's available for a smaller sized awning. Seems like most are around 6'6" when closed.
