2 dr. JK is two short

I find the 2 dr JK doesn't have the space for 2 adults and cargo, and it needs about 12" added to its length. take a look at this JKL http://www.jklwrangler.com

I like it, but I did just go from a tj to a lj. I think they could stand to make the trunk a tiny bit larger as well.

For $8500 and a month to do, it is better to just get 4dr JK. Yea its not 2dr but has more space and cheaper.

I was looking for a used 05/06 unlimited. Couldn't find any worth it.

I'm sorry, isn't this why the Unlimited exists? It's, like, a 20-inch-longer Wrangler with more space for things inside?

I'm betting at that price it doesn't include a new hard or soft top, and where are you going to find one to fit?

I think that some people need to re-evaluate why they bought a JEEP and maybe buy some thing else. On that note I'd like to see Jeep return more to its roots and make a CJ7/YJ/TJ size Jeep again.
Nothing against a bigger Jeep, it should just be in addition to not a replacement for.
And yes a 2 door JK is huge for a "Jeep"

Op/ First let me say the new jeep design, may not need tobe lengthing, and with the new pick-up Chrysler Group could add a second JKU ON ITS LONG TRUCK PLATFORM with #3 rows of seats
What I wonder will jeep keep the name JK wrangler or give a new code.

I will comment on this to say I believe the 4 door saved jeep from bankruptcy and thus we can still enjoy Jeeps as a whole,Personally I prefer the 2 door JK,I did have a 06 TJ and I feel I gained quite a bit more room in comparison, I have considered a roof rack to accommodate more items. Hey I miss the TJ for driving in tight places but I luv my new JK rides better and I feel it has more offroad capability except for the tight 4 wheeler trails

Fiat-Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne has stated the next generation Wrangler will not share a platform with any other Chrysler product. That means unique Wrangler frame and such.

As to the other thing, JL or JK2 if I can read their patterns well.
