    Based on the JLU Rubicon posted by a member yesterday, here is our best guess at what the production 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon will look like. Some creative liberties were obviously necessary for the renderings.

    We love how the JLU looks and think you will too! Enjoy!

    Oh these are niiiiiice. I already though the JLUR looked good when I saw the pics this morning but man these ones really bring it to life. Makes you realize how the new style changes actually do make an improvement.

    That's a really nice job. Shows that the changes make it sleeker and more modern looking. I really like it. How about a front image without the roof and doors?

    Forum Render needs to have the rear door flipped to match the JLUR leaked photo/render.

    This change is very likely to happen as it addresses a common reviewer complaint when loading from a curb and the door getting in the way.
    As a driver it means you'll have to walk around it so it's robbing Peter to pay Paul, but it is a fairly common comment in reviews (especially of the urban CR variety), less so of owners.

    Of a bit more concern is the lack not only of a carrier, but even of tire carrier mounting points on that JLUR image. Hopefully this is a rendering omission and not a startegy to lighten the JL by removing the assembly and replace it with a tyre inflation kit like on many modern vehicles. I'm OK with it if a stock OEM option is still available, just concerned about the price if that is the intended plan as a spare tyre + rim (ie whole tire) alone would likely be about $300+ let alone a carrier assembly. I'm fine with it being optional on a Sport or Sahara, but a Willys or Rubicon (as pictured here) should have a tire carrier as standard and the mounting equipment readily in place.

    Plus, rear vent is missing from the new JLUR source image, so might not have that either (possibly move to the edges nearer the taillights? )

    Thank you for this post.

    If I may impose upon the good nature of the admin...The JL and/or JLU will serve as the foundation of the new Wrangler pickup coming out in 2019. Could you please mock-up a rendering of what the pickup would look like using the newest details and information that we now have?

    Admin confirmed yesterday in the other thread that the rear door will still open from the same side as the JK.

    Incredible work thank you for sharing! I hope they offer the Mango Tango type color. And hope the front quarter panel vent is really that aggressive looking. Totally changes up the look of the side of the car and easily distinguishes the car from the JKU.

    Nice work! Must have the Mango Tango...

    I agree with the side vent comment above. Functional or not it adds a styling queue needed in that area. My first car was a '67 Mustang, which had non functional side vents. Nobody EVER complained about it...

    With this being my first entry into the "Wrangler World" I can't say how hyped I am. I can already picture myself walking into the dealer ship the day orderbanks open with the biggest smile on my face.

    Is it wrong for me to be pitching a tent at work right now?
