Yes it is, here is mine. 2 doors are the real jeep from the beginning. 4 doors are like kissing your sister,(you just don’t do it).

2019 JLUR Mojito,
Tanner, I disagree with the position expressed in your statement. A wide stance 4-door is not a Jeep (commonly accepted definition), it is an SUV. By todays nanny standards it may fit, but to me it is just another factor in the evolution of this enjoyable hobby. A wider stance came along somewhere in the mid 80s due to a bunch of reckless yayhoos that did not respect the vehicle they were in control of. Their poor behaviour became a legal liability to AMC so management tasked their engineers to accommodate government pressure concerning safety standards.

I will admit there were more pucker factor events with the old axles in the narrow track variation. Your point concerning stability is well taken and truly is a concern with the current marketing audience. The current audience is more risk aversive and lean towards a comfy ride during their off-road exploits, differing from the audience of just 30 years ago. Go back 50 years and Jeepers were mostly self sufficient in nature and possessed a pioneering spirit.

I do agree it is a sad time for fans of the traditional Jeep. And, I also accept the rights of others to do as they please with their enjoyment of the hobby, within legal limits.
4 doors FTW

Yes they are. I waited three months for them to arrive. They are the nicest looking beed locks IMO, I had seen and easy to clean. Installed by Daytona Garage at dealership where I ordered them along with the lights and winch guard.

I’m a 2 dr guy, always have been. I was an IH Scout man back in the day (‘cause they had read steel doors and real window, as opposed to close door,plastic window cj’s). Went with Jeep with the TJ and been there ever since. Since I drive mine year around (used to be my work car) I wanted a heater that worked and a tight cabin. If anyone had ever told me I’d have a Jeep that would average more than 25 mpg I’d have said they were nuts.

The manuals will die soon I bet or at least be pretty limited but I doubt the two door will die. I’ve wanted to buy a 2 door Jeep and my girlfriend hates the aesthetics of them, she dislikes the 2 door bronco as well. She however likes the 4 door wrangler and loves the 4 door bronco. The 4 door bronco does look better than the 4 door wrangler but all the 4 doors look like their proportions are screwed up.
