2-doors have an advantage on switchbacks and tight corner mountain roads. I have seen/experienced this.
We suffer on straight hill climbs though, where the JLU and JT are more stable with long wheelbases.

Cargo space is at a premium in 2-doors, where you have plenty with a 4-door or Gladiator. Contrastingly, gas mileage is a bit better in the smaller jeeps, between the no-v8 option (factory) and being overall lighter.

You will never tow as much in a 2-door as a 4-door, and winch rescuing larger vehicles is risky because of the smaller weight.

It really does, as Kruzin said, depend on what you are using it for.
I wish I could snag a CJ or an M- anything (personally, my favorite is the M-38 from Vietnam); but I wouldn't trade my 2-door all arounder (Daily Driver and Play Jeep) for anything right now
