The model with a bumper guard doesn't have cut outs.

Looking at sales figures, if they diverged the 2 lines the 2 door would be dead and gone by now. The purists may hate it, but the 4 door is carrying the line.
Sad but true. However, I think the 2 door would have survived, due to the niche market established around it and its iconic image.

As much as I hate to admit it, the 4 door Wrangler has been the "bread and butter" for Jeep for some time now.

I don't understand it, but people love the 4 door.

It is what it is.

Buy and drive what you like. I can’t believe how many unyielding opinions are posted in this thread. The forum in general has quite a few posters whose opinion is “I made the best choices, your choices suck!” Shaking my head.

Yep I shake my head too. Every forum, Facebook Group, etc. has them no matter what the topic. The best response is no response.

To me a 2 dr is a jeep. A 4 dr is a suv typ jeep for those with families and like company with them. I don’t like more than 1 passenger and that’s in the right front. Don’t like people behind me. More than one to much jabber and can’t enjoy the trip. Come to think about it, don’t care to much for people either.

I know I'm more of a Unicorn having a 2 door manual but here's my observation:
- I'm not 100% convinced a Jeep is a Jeep unless it's a 2-door AND manual on a 4-door just feels wrong. Thus I'm back to my 2-door!
- While the 4-door makes more money, I actually don't think they'll drop the 2-door. If they did, it would open the door further for people like us to go to the likes of a the new 2-door Bronco which in the end would hurt the overall brand hurting both 2-door and 4-door sales. If you happen to watch the video of the Ford Bronco Product Managers talking about the new Bronco (which I have to admit is a nice vehicle), they ask which one they are getting and most of them said 2-door manual :)

And yes, I know there are many 4 door variants that are awesome and I still waive at you :)

Man... that thing is awesome.

We all know Wrangler = 2 doors & Wrangler Unlimited = 4 doors.
So since the Gladiator has 4 doors, does that make it a Gladiator Limited? Hopefully it would be cialled the Scrambler.
I'd say it would make the gladiator unlimited since it appears to go on forever. And yes, Scrambler would be a fitting name for the two door jeep pickup but my son says it sounds like a breakfast menu item.:)

If Jeep decided to build a 2 door on the Unlimited wheelbase, it should be called it a Commando.

Too bad the Renegade name is being used on a Fiat with a Jeep name on it.

They should not have given the Jeep the name Wrangler, this distinction should have been given to some Nissan Pickup.

Just my 2 cents.
FYP
Always hated that name!
