    Yes that's made my interest in the JL even higher. Hopefully it'll be a modern day version of my TJ -- all the modern amenities and improvements that have come since the TJ but with the character and look.

    Definitely looks like they're combining the JK with the TJ to create the JL....

    Flat windshield, separate side windshield hinges, fancy hood, fender lights. I like the throwback changes.

    I like the new round look on everything and a full door in the rear would be cool. It just looks like it will have a sleeker look then the jk

    So are we going to see something like the Africa safari concept possibly? I don't know how they would engineer it with the removable top but it would be kinda cool.

    Nope. Not compatible with open roof or removable panels.

    I drew this up real quick what if it can disconnect in the middle for when the top comes off? Just brainstorming. You could even make it possible to open just the windshield for quick things.

    How would the rear glass open like that? There's still going to be a spare on the back just like the JK. It's in the spy shots too. I would prefer swing up glass just like now, it gets it out of your way and don't have to worry about it swinging back and forth or hitting anything when you open it.

    I agree with you just throwing out random ideas.

    Yea I like the thinking outside the box and actually many things I like about the Africa concept. Lightweight + diesel and a really usable trunk is a great start, but I've always thought it looks off without the spare mounted to the rear. A folddown tailgate would be nice too.

    They've had some really great concepts at EJS and I hope they borrow the best features from them (this being one of them).
