I must be getting really old. I grew up in a family of 5 and we never had a 4 door vehicle. We went on countless vacations in a 2 door Chevy Vega and nobody ever complained. Just like my father, I have never owned a 4 door vehicle and never will if I can help it. There's not a 4 door vehicle on the planet that I find attractive.

That being said, if Jeep drops the 2 door, I would either try to keep my JL forever or I would buy some other 2 door.
This vehicle isnt attractive ?

The 2 door experience is incredible and is a bedrock of American automotive history - I can’t imagine they’d kill it off. I think the money they pull in from the renegade-type cars they put out enables them to keep the wrangler as is, no?

They certainly price them for a profit regardless of insane volume or not.

I made the jump from a 2dr JK, to a JLU. As good as the JL is, I hate it at times. I even thought I could convince myself that it was better by going all in on a highly spec'd Rubicon. But I still miss my sport JK, and the X TJ, and the Sahara TJ before that. For me the only positive point of the 4 dr, and the deciding factor for me, is that my two very tall boys want to go wheeling with me and their Mom. With my 2dr JK all they ever did was complain about how uncomfortable it was in the back seat. Pic of the outgoing and current Jeep.

This post probably had the opposite effect you intended.

It made me appreciate the 4door more.

Reminds me that this 50k toy is actually (for me) something for the family and not just me.

I appreciate that this 4 door exist and is 90% as capable and fun as the 2 door (% # not exact only for illustration purposes). Without it I'll be in a GC thinking of how I can make it convertible.

I understand completely. I understand why the 4 door exists, and I am glad that it does. In my eyes, the 2dr is the evolution of the original CJ, while the 4 door is the new Cherokee. It is as popular now as the Cherokee was in the 80s. The 4 dr is great, but I still lust for my old 2 dr.
