Lets say you go in for an oil change and a dealer walks up to you and says

“I can get you into a Gladiator and you won’t lose any money on the deal, your trade in will match the price of the Gladiator. Please, I need to sell one of these, I got kids man.”

Would you be tempted to trade for a brand new Jeep or do you just love your two door too much?

Right now my trade in is worth 2-3k less than what I was offered for a Willys Gladiator, and I’m tempted, but a 2 door just feels right. JTs are cool as hell too but it’s just not the same. Now if they had offered me a 392 I would be on here asking for the best places to sell my blood for gas money.

If it’s a left over diesel, the only engine they had with PU torque then maybe we can talk, otherwise hell no !
They actually have one but they want 70k for it. Like I love Jeeps and all but if I was to spend 70k on a car with reliability issues it would be a 718 Boxster.

A 2 door without the bed would be perfect, I would make that trade in a heartbeat.
so...just swapping your 2 door for a no miles 2 door? lmao

Naw, I want the 2 door with the bed. I like mine too much to just get rid of it for another 2 door.

Uh oh, sorry, I can’t pass up the opportunity you just handed to me.

No, not even if I had a big-ass 4-door, I still wouldn't want an even larger Jeep. Guess it would be great for picking up the wife's boyfriend and their kids from soccer practice :facepalm:

Now, if you were offering me the non-existent J6 2-door pickup, then hell yeah. That or the 392 are the only Jeeps I'd want as much or more than mine. Stick the new turbo inline 6 in a small 2-door JT and you got yourself an offer I couldn't refuse.

If you "need" a truck it certainly wouldn't be a JT... That's about the only reason I can see anyone switching, unless perhaps you're in need of towing a bit more and just have to have a Jeep looking tow vehicle. Then again... Just a get an actual truck, you'll be happier in every single metric.

OTOH, if you're into overlanding for extended periods I suppose they're cool.

I've owned several 2-door Jeeps, up through my old 2018 JLR. I thought a Gladiator could be cool when word of them first came out, but like others, I had hoped to see a 2-door version of it. No real interest in having the 4-door Gladiator as it is. I got one as a rental on a trip earlier this year...thing felt like I was driving a city block, as much longer than the 2-door JL I was used to driving. It was cool to have as a rental compared to the junk I usually get stuck with, but I couldn't see owning one.

That said...I did finally leave the 2-door Jeep life last month...for a 392. Totally different animal there! 😎
