    Last week, my friends and I were doing some wheelin' in Colorado (around Silverton) and stumbled across a bunch of very secretive looking guys with binoculars with walkie talkies positioned at every corner of the trail. My first guess was new Wrangler, and sure enough, as we got closer to the crew, we saw a red JL and a grey JLU - both covered up.

    My friend took the photo (attached) as we drove by.

    Further up the trail I looked back and saw a grey JLU completely uncovered being photographed! It's possible I have an accidental photo of them uncovered from afar as I was shooting that way before I knew the Jeeps were there, but I'll have a proper look once I go through my photos

    Can't wait to see the photos on jeep.com or in brochures!

    Oh, and I believe these to be the doors to the JL :)

    Epic first post and nice grab! Now you HAVE to go check your photos and see if you caught one in the distance. :)

    Very cool! Looks like the soft top windows under it too.

    It seemed like a few people were taking photos of them covered up - was really surprised they didn't mind us snapping a few photos as we went past. The guys were super nice and I told them I couldn't wait to see it when it's finally announced!

    Btw, I guess this confirms no glass windows for soft top like what was rumored?

    Well done JKU15. This is just what the people on this forum have been jonesing for recently, interesting new pics! The rollbar / cage looks just like the way it looked in the CAD photos a while back to me, so I think this is confirmation of that belief, and it will look pretty much just like the renderings, which I am a fan of.

    I’m pretty sure these are the same wheels. Just with added chrome (which looks ugly imo)

    Gee, and I thought they would have taken all the pics in a closed studio, and "photoshopped" them into various breathtaking locales. I mean, every official pic I have seen from Jeep, has been "photoshopped". :bandit:
