Yeah, 2WD would be a mistake IMO. Trust me I was in the same boat. I didnt think I would ever need 4WD since I would never take it off road (BIG MISTAKE). Im now less than a year away from being done with payments on my JK 2WD 4 Door. And you guessed it Im getting a late model 2010 4 Door Rubicon.

I have an 07 2WD Wrangler Unlimited. It is actually my second 07 2WD but why I have a second one is a whole other story!!!
I live in north Texas and I know there are some who will argue with me, but this part of Texas is not 4WD country. I do not want to go muddin' and that is about all I could do unless I want to pay to go to a 4WD park. On the rare occasions that we get snow here, and this year we got more than I have ever seen here. I was stuck in traffic and went through a field to get away from it. I had no problems. After that I went down a street that most everyone was avoiding and had no problems going through the banks that had built up. I really enjoy my Jeep and if I don't tell anyone they never know that I do not have 4WD. I like the looks of the new Jeep. I did not want to pay the additional $2K that would have had to spend to get 4WD. It just wasn't worth it to me.

i'm not trying to be mean or anything, but a 2wd wrangler would be an abomination. If you would purchase it, you would always bring yourself shame when talking to people about Jeeps, unless you just would never tell anyone that it's 2wd. And even if you may never go offroad, you are buying a classic 4x4 vehicle. If you want something else then don't buy a wrangler.

have you ever driven a short wheel base vehicle in a place with less than ideal traction like snow or mud?? without 4wd you have no steering.

if you get stuck in a situation where you need 4wd and you dont have it you will kick yourself a thousand times over and posably hurt yourself or others.
