They released it as an unfinished prototype, probably looking for constructive feedback, not a bunch of wieners

I really dislike the stinger, but then again, I have never been a fan of stingers to begin with. I do, however, like the bottom portion, but it could use a bit more smoothing out. So could the portions under the headlights...it's just a little too boxy for the WK, in my opinion. Honestly, I think the design "language" would fit a lot better on an XK. Overall, I think it's a good start, but it needs smoothing out and refining to fit in with the design of WK's. It sure does look like it offers a lot of clearance, though!

^this. Not a big fan of the stinger at all. If I were to purchase I'd probably remove it. I agree it needs to be less square. Great progress though. Hopefully the rude comments don't stop them from creating it.

They said the stinger is an option so yall can stop crying about the boxie stinger and it weighs 93 pounds. Also the bumper comes with the 08 + headlights and grill so if u wanted to upgrade to the projectors it would be super easy

I need to lift the rear end up and check the air bags, I lost pressure over night.

Just because it's an option doesn't mean I can't have an opinion on it. They asked for constructive criticism so this is mine: everything just needs to be smoothed out a bit and flow better with the WK lines.

These look great, but those headrests have to be ironed or something.

Yes, they did. Maybe it's a Limited thing, not sure which one you have. Mine is an 05 limited hemi.
