If I did the math correctly they sold just about 200k JKU's vs 50k JK's. You just know some FCA bean counters are looking at this and wondering when they can axe the 2 door.

Even though the percentage is small, it's still about 1,000 vehicles per week, don't think they would want to give that up. All Wranglers are VERY profitable for FCA.

No way they ever do that unless they're killing off the Wrangler completely. The 2 door not only provides the identity for the Wrangler as the original but for all of the Jeep brand as a whole.

True. I don't think FCA would really axe it completely at least not anytime soon but I do worry they offer more and more options exclusive for the 4 door. Even certain engines?

Its funny ... I was over on the bronco6g.com (forum for the new Bronco) and everyone is saying they want a 2 door only version. If Ford knows the numbers above they would be shooting their selves in the foot to make a 2 door only bronco.
