Just ask @cosine he knows!
I know the market would be limited but it would seem fairly easy to manufacture and with the popularity of the Gladiator I think there would be enough interest out there.

TBH I would love to have a 2dr Rubicon Gladiator, I don't need anything more than that for hauling or storage. The current Gladiator is too long for many garages and for what I would use it for the shorter wheelbase is ideal.

That vehicle on 35s or a small 37" tire would seem just about perfect as far as proportions and off road clearance.

Not really a fan of that roll bar but everything else just looks way too right for this not to happen :)

Really curious how many of you would trade the JL/JLU you're driving for a 2dr Gladiator??

That’s certainly a lot better than the current form. The proportions are off and it looks a little weird and too long. 2 doors or even a 2 door extra cab would look better and perform better off road.

Not sure I would buy one but would make a nice little truck and looks much better in my opinion. Maybe a little longer cab for a little storage behind or putting seat back just a little. Like the old Toyota Pickups.

On second thought scratch that idea. LOL

That could be a great platform for a couple's overlander rig.
If it actually happens, I'd think about it.

I think it looks amazing and I'd absolutely buy one, even though I've never really been into pickups. But since the J6 concept is from years ago, I doubt we'll ever see the damn thing in real life. Hell, they still haven't been able to mass-produce the 3-bar winch guard yet (other than a shorter version that looks nothing like it).

I get that Jeep's a somewhat traditionalist marquee and not quick to move on new things lately, but I'm incredibly disheartened with a brand that was once able to pull off fun rides like the Scrambler and this year we get a flag decal, two new paints and higher prices - and that's it.

No i6 engine, no 20th Anniversary Rubicon, no mid-gen refresh, no 2-door Gladiator. Nothing. ☹

Of course not, next to no one would buy it. On a business point of view, they would lose money building it. So Zero reason to even consider it.
