Looks good. Power windows standard as a factory option...very cool...no more leaning over the center hump to crank the window while driving...

I think you may be right...

Guess the doors won't be getting any lighter! No more paddles either, there's an end to an era.

Electrical stabilizer bar disconnect...thats a pretty slick option. If this is indeed fact, I like to see stuff for off-road incorporated into the factory plans. I'm starting to think maybe its a good thing I will be in the market for a new car this fall.

Side shot, 4 door version, partially covered. Gives you a pretty good look.

I think I remember reading that the new ones would be longer wheelbase and wider.

Your most likely correct, but what if it was so similar to the TJ that current aftermarket parts will fit.

Different engines, different frame measurements, new body styling...probably not much chance that TJ stuff will fit.

Wow, not bad at all! That it even has an electrically actuated front antiswaybar disco is awesome!

At first glance I didn't like the look of the small back window but then I thought about how it reminds me of the old CJ hardtops and I liked it a little better.

Over all, with as little you can tell from the write up and pictures I'd give it a B+ / A-. I like it.

Wow...

The electric swaybar disco...awesome.

...i was really worried based on early press that they were gonna loose the drop down windshield.

A curved windshield and a slanted grille will take some getting used to...

...but power windows on a removable door sounds pretty cool.

32" wheels stock sounds nice as well.

unlike their empty bowtie/golden eagle/willys trim packages...it sounds like DC is actually listening to us!

i gotta start saving.

Now is this official or artists impression?

It looks alright and there are features I like, but there are also some things I hate...

The C-pillar is huge, but probably to give the top rigidity with the side panels removed.
The door shape will have to grow on me.
I don't like the different angles on the rear fender.
The compound curves of the bodywork will probably make armour plating very difficult.
The dash I'm not convinced on... will have to see it in black. Glove box looks pathetically small...



I'm very happy to see solid axles stay, and a solid chassis, and a cage.

I wouldn't mind one as a daily driver if my TJ ended up more hardcore, but I don't think I'll be trading in any time soon...

Still trying to push the city slickers. 18" rims with Sahara. Yuck. All and all very nice. Probably get one in 5 years lol.
