We can now confirm that the 2019 Jeep Wrangler 2-door Sahara JL is listed on an internal 2019 JL launch list.

Correction - All indications of the 2-door JL Sahara we have seen so far have been export models.

Here you can see visual proof the 2DR JL Sahara is being readied, with its unique five-spoke wheels, LED lighting package and body color hard top.

This will be very tempting to wait for (if it comes to North America)! Thanks for making my decision on what Jeep to get even more difficult. :)

Odd that they would cover it with camo, though I don't know when that photo was actually taken. A 2-door JL Sahara doesn't seem to be a hard thing to offer at this point.

Might they change their minds about the diesel in the two door?

They should probably work on producing a single 2018 customer 2-door first....

Notice the light on the outer mirror edge? I don't think we have that now do we?

As I wait for my 2 door JL ordered in January that I may not receive until June, I suspected there might be some body refresh before I get the Rubicon. Always owned Sahara's as they fit my needs but ordered the Rubi since Sahara 2 door was not available. Curse you FCA!

Yup, front licence plate holder gives it away, as well as the mirror turn signals. Interesting to see it has LED headlights, though; I did wonder if they would end up being US market only.

Would have been even more interesting to see inside so we could establish if it had Selec-Trac or not.

Possibly an ‘Overland’ model JL instead of Sahara?

In EU Sahara is black top, Overland is body coloured.

Could be either; at this point, EU spec is anybody's guess.

Interesting that it appears to have a lip around the edge of the flares. Could be for aerodynamic reasons, but might also be because some markets have a minimum radius on sharp edges.

Let's be serious. Any promise that Jeep will one day begin production on any trim of 2 door JL is fake news.
