2008 Wk



Here's all the latest info:
http://www.wkjeeps.com/2008_intro.htm

The good news is that the dorky bumper with misplaced fog lights has been nicely refreshed, but the bad news, for those who modify, is that it looks like the lower air dam will no longer be removable.

According to the press release, Jeep says the lower portion is removable, but I have yet to see a picture of how that would look. It seems that the facia around the fog lights would come off, but I'd like to see what's left behind.

From Autoblog: "Hardcore off-roaders will be pleased to know, however, that the new fascia is compised of two-pieces, the lower of which can be removed when trail-rating your new Grand Cherokee."

Certainly looks schweet. I'm wondering if that entire lower bumper cover comes off right under the headlights and just leaves the center piece. That would look hawt!!!

Lower facia...

Now that I look at it closer, I can see where it detaches. I bet it does look cool without that piece...

I still think those new wheels suck.
