4 door vs 2 door

Hey y'all, I'm getting a new 2013 JK in the next few weeks and its going to be my first Jeep. I've been test driving both 2 door and 4 door and I have fallen in love with both. I'm just wanting to see if I can get some pros and cons from people that have them to try and help make my decision. I'm 19 and a college student, so I'm going to have this car for a while. Thank you so much and I'm excited to join the Jeep world.

What I would do in your shoes is NOT get in $30k debt going into college with a vehicle. Look for a TJ, one can be had for around $10k with decent miles and in good shape. It will last just as long as the 13 will too.

It's a gift from my parents, so I won't be paying for it just mods.

The only reason to get a 4 door is if you need the extra cargo space and convenience of entry to the rear seat. Being 19, I doubt this is the scenario for you. Get the 2 door; no sense in driving a vehicle as big as a 4 door if you don't need it.
