Actually, I saw a few 07's in the owner parking lot this morning... somehow people have gotten ahold of them already. Unfortunately, I can't walk to any spot where I could video a JK on anything other than level ground... unless I happen to see one in the owner's playground which is a longshot.

I saw them, too. One of the guy's was driving with his family owns a Chrysler/Jeep dealership in Michigan. It was the first one he received for his lot and he promptly brought it to Camp Jeep. Another one was purchased by someone in Wisconsin just a few days ago and he brought the JK instead of his TJ. I saw one Jeep's loaner JK 4 door Rubicons in the owners' playground today. See Rocky529's Second Update at Camp Jeep for a more in-depth story.

Got to drive a 4D Rubicon JK @ CJ yesterday. Let's just say it high centered just about everywhere on the course.

The rear windows don't roll down from what I saw. Overall, the seats feel much flatter than my TJ (which I would not consider all that comfortable for the 8 hour drive to Elk Hart Lake.) The interior room feels larger as well so I thinking increased front area for even worse fuel economy.

The front "skid plate" or fascia is plastic as are the bumpers

Can't really comment on power when you are only creeping along. On another show JK with a 6sp, the clutch felt feather soft.

Would I buy one...probably and promptly lift it at least 6" and put on some 34-35" tires.

HTH

In the rear doors? Yes, they do.

In the sides of the hard top? No, they don't, but we have no reason to expect them to.

The one I saw appeared to have electric in the front doors but I did not see so much as a handle or switch on the back door? What gives?

Unless I'm mistaken, the switches for the rear windows are actually on the rear portion of the center console. Has something to do with the electrical ramifications of removing the power window equipped doors.

You are correct. To remove the doors, you first have to remove some interior trim to access the wiring harness.

You just unplug a connection similar to the one that you disconnect when you remove your hardtop. You don't have to remove any trim to access it.

Hey fellas! My friends and I test drove the KJ's at Camp Jeep this past weekend. It was kinda funny because my friend and I took turns driving it and he went all over the rocks and it was a pretty nice ride. There were no vent's in the back seat so that kinda sucked. But when it was my turn to drive, I drove all over the rocks that were out of bounds on the trails. The guide was pretty kool, he was a local guy from MI (Lapeer). He told us to do what we wanted just as long as we don't hit a tree. I think I beat on it pretty good cuz when I pulled over to get out the other guides were asking our guide where we went. I thought those other giudes were just joking around but they were pulling branches and leaves from the front and that plastic skid plate fell off. I almost hit a tree too when I was trying go over some of those rocks on the side of the trails...

You have to remove trim in order to un-plug the harness and remove the checkstrap on the rear doors of the 2007 Wrangler.

Oh I only looked at the front doors. I figured the rear was the same set up.
