Getting the 4 door, three passenger Bronco. It is a inch or two smaller than the wife's Outback. It is not a big truck. Getting a 60% seat delete and a flat deck for the dogs and gear.

So, lots of talk here about pricing and options and all that stuff.

Fundamental question here - why go 4-door unless you have to? I’m a family man and we can have only one car because we live in a dense city, parking in a ramp where I’m entitled to only the spot that I own.

if I had no kids, if I could get my own toy instead of having to share with my wife, there’s no way I’d get a 4-door. I’d be 2-door, all the way. I just think it looks tons cooler, it’s apparently more nimble on the trail, and it just screams “this is my dude vehicle, with just enough room for a girl by my side and my dog in the back. Or maybe vice versa.”

Then I’d crank up some classic rock and tear ass out of there at 50 mph, with no doors, no roof and the envy of all who can see.
Yeh, not riding folks in this. I prefer taking seats out of the 2 door.

Lol'ing at the young parents getting a 2-door. Those kids grow up, and fast. You think you have to lug around a bunch of stuff now, just wait, it multiplies. This is our oldest getting dropped off at school:

For the record: back pack, school binder, notebook, lunch box, change of clothes, tennis racket, french horn and a water bottle.

All though our Bronco will be a 3rd or 4th vehicle (depending on what we decide to keep) it will be our primary weekend warrior, road trip and family vehicle that will see just as many car pool lanes as it will trails.

4 door it is for us.

I wish I had never found this F\/(K!NG forum. I've let you MF'rs into my head WAY too many times to make an actual rational decision.

Now I'm gonna stay awake all night over the 2 door vs 4 door argument.

Don't yall know December 7th is WAY too close for this?!?!?

Is that a tuba?? I'm debating 4 door for for the extra fuel and space... I reserved and think the 2 door looks better though.

Well each to his own so everyone wants to do their own thing. Personally if I wanted a tiny vehicle maybe I could have gone for a Mini Cooper but instead I wanted the back seat for more storage as well as space for passengers. The 2 door jeeps look more like a toy than a vehicle and the 2door bronco may be an improvement but it sure as hell is not for everyone.

4 door here. 2 small kids so the more room the merrier. Also I like the fact that the doors qill fit in the back of the 4 door if I get the urge to go doorless whilen we're already out

Guess I'm in the minority thinking the 4 door looks better, especially with the top off! 4 door fills out those Sasquatch 35"s much better. They look oversized on the 2dr...monster truck-esque imo. Not to mention I could use the extra trunk space for my 50" 2nd amendment.

Why should you get a 4-door?
Because I want everyone to get a 4-door so my 2-door is rare.😁
Same here, but because that's how the original was. Unless you will use the back seats more times than not get the 4 door, if not I'd go 2 door. I rather get my two door manual and rarely see another one like it.

4 door here, no kids yet but I hate not having space. 2 door was never on the table for me.
