Looks a lot better than I first thought. Spec's sound great too. Sure hope the come out with a pickup.

MSN just had a arcticle on the new Toyota FJ40 with retro look to be released this summer too.

Happy JeepN

Wow... I'm looking forward to seeing one up close. Five inches wider; seems like a lot. I wonder how much effort it will take to remove the hardtop panels, and if they can be stored on-board?

Anyway, thanks for the advance peek. I've really been curious about this one.

I am widening my jeep 4 inches most likely it not that big of a jump and should offer better stability and handling when lifted

It doesnt inspire me to rush out and buy one.
The more I look at it, the more I think H3.
And electric windows ? No thanks
I'm keeping my 02.

From the pics posted here it looks like a cool Jeep toy, if it was radio controlled i'd buy one for my nephew. As for calling it a real Jeep, I'll wait till I can see one close up. It looks very plasticy and reminds me of an suv city boys buy and then when they see a dirt road or mud puddle they say they are off roading. But I will wait to say I completely hate it until I can actually see one, as with all change there will be some getting used to it.

And power windows on a Jeep? I guesse they would be nice for some but I will stick to my soft top and half doors with zippers.

The dash is way too "Sissy" for me. They should have gone to a more square look or at least square dash vent louvers! And what the hell are those pop up things on top of the dash? And that article calls last year models "Crap"--hmmmm!

Electric disco -- yes!

Hood seems wider

I really hope this isn't a photochop....overall I like it, with a few minor cosmetic complaints. That and I don't like the idea of power windows.

Getting new bumpers will be a hassle with the built in fog lights. We'll have to buy new fog lights (or an aftermarket bracket possibly) and splice it in and re mount it. Unless aftermarket bumpers include it built in.

I guess I'm the only one who think it looks like poo. With as much as we do to our jeeps, I forsee a buttload of stuff that will just be taken off and thrown out. Not a simple enough design for me. Might make for a nice unmodded DD though, I like the interior.

Yeah, jeep has kept a really similar design over the years and this might be the straw that breaks the camel's back. After this design, theylle be looking like H2's in a few years with TOO many bling parts and creature comforts. A jeep is not supposed to be a luxury ride but oh well.
