You wouldn't want to remove the doors either - imagine how it would look with that B pillar sticking up...
Personally I do like the 2 door though. I have reservations about the V6.
I don't get all the comments about how awful it looks, a non-jeeper wouldn't even notice that it's any different. I like the changes for the most part.

I've shown JK - TJ pics to quite a few non jeep guys/gals and they noticed right away. That was with full doors and hard tops. It's pretty different looking actually. Closer with soft top. I haven't seen a pic of half doors yet. That would probably make it look closer to the older style jeep look.

Obviously theres going to be a difference, or it wouldn't be a new platform. But what he's getting at is that its suttle enough to still LOOK like a Jeep. Its not like its looking like a Cherokee or a Trailblazer or something...you can tell a JK and TJ share a bloodline.

And for the record, I think they look alot alike too, kind of like a TJ-Hummer love child.

Right on! Except, you accidentally typed 'Hummer' instead of 'CJ'...

Meh, I agree that the 4 door does look a little too Hummer-ish. Oh well. Remember the good ol' days when we could laugh at Hummer guys for being posers and ripping off Jeep styling? *Sigh* The good ol' days...

This is also the topic of discussion over on the Camaro forums. Apparently, like back in the 60s, all the "pony" cars are beginning to look alike again. That comes down to the fact that all cars really do look alike. You can only go so square, and so round, before things start to run together with their own accents. If you want to get techincal, HUMMERS look like JEEPS, since Jeeps have been doing the "Square" thing alot longer than H2/H3's.
