Jk is growing on me

I hated it when I first saw it....but the more I look at it I am finding things I really like about this new Jeep....anyone else feel the same?

I liked it when I saw it first, but having seen a few of them driving around in my part of Michigan, I'm starting to dislike them. The big plastic fenders make it look really weird since the hood is angled in and the fenders make the body line continue to the front. Reminded me of an old school Beetle, but with plastic fenders.

I don't like 'em. I hate the sharp angles on the doors and top as well as the more bloated plastic look of the Fenders. Sharp angles look too much like a Honda element or some new trendy thing.

Actually that bothered me when I first saw them, since corners and edges are likely to rust first. After a while, those grew on me, but I don't think the front fenders will.

this jeep looks 100% better with an arb bumper in the front and the boxy hard top removed.

I'll also need to see it in person as the pictures are NOT growing on me. I still think its fugly but I'd like to see and drive one to be sure it suckith as I assume it does.

Safe assumption that it will look 100% better?

I think it looks like total crap, that is why I went and bought my '06.
The 4 door looks like a Volkswagen Thing mated with a Hummer H3.
YUCK !

Im boycotting purchasing a jeep till they offer a diesel with a manual. Otherwise I still think the 4 door version looks like a copy of the H2.

they are starting to grow on me from pics i've seen. Top definitely looks too boxy (are there any pics with a soft top yet?). I have to say i do realy like the interior from what i've seen. As far as the fender flares go, i think they look goofy but i doubt it'll be a problem to replace them with oem tougher looking boxier aftermarket flares. In general i feel the JK is almost boxy wher it should be round and round where it should be boxy.
